A quiet portrait of Rachel Carson:
“patron saint” of green-movement and author of Sense of Spring
The film is an intimate and poignant reflection of Carson’s life as she emerges as America’s most successful advocate for the natural world. A Sense of Wonder was shot in HD by Oscar-winning cinematographer Haskell Wexler at Carson’s cottage on the coast of Maine. Rachel Carson has been called the “patron saint” of the modern environmental movement. The Atlantic has listed her as one of the 40 most influential figures in American history. Praising Carson and her work, Al Gore wrote that, “without [Silent Spring], the environmental movement might have been long delayed or never developed at all.”
“Only within the moment of time represented by the present century has one species — man — acquired significant power to alter the nature of his world.” — Rachel Carson
