(Sustainability) Movie: Wall-E


Wall-E about our, not so unrealistic, future

The movie takes place about 700 years in the future, where mankind has left the world behind. A world completly covered with trash from products sold by a big international company called Buy N Large coorperation. Every human left is now living on a big Spaceship waiting for the world to "recover". They all have become extremly fat by only sitting in big hovering chairs and comunicating or watching TV with a screen right in front of their faces. Furthermore they drink their meal through a Straw. Over the generations their bodies really suffered from this trend, in fact, many of their bones began to disconnect and shrink, and so they can barely move anymore.

The Wall-E is a garbage collecting Roboter who its destiny is to clean up the whole world, alone, expet for his little friend, a cockroach. One day he falls in love with EVE, a reconnaissance robot, who is sent frequently to the earth in order to inspect wheter is life possible again on the earth or not. After she wants to leave, due to Wall-E's loneliness and/or his love to her, he desperatly wants to follow her on an adventure to safe the rest of human kind.



The Movie itself drasticly displays in which direction we are might going if we are not aware of the mass industry and sustainability at all. Its a movie both for just children entertainment, but contentwise for adults too and it really lets us think is this all going in the right direction? With everything going bigger and faster?
