 [RE]FRAMING REPAIR 

a documentary

Repair is something we've done for generations.

It is the ability to understand the things we use by taking them apart and using creativity to give them a second life, connecting individual empowerment to environmental sustainability. 

But in a world where we're constantly buying new and throwing out the old,  repair is a way of life that's disappearing in an era of mass consumption.

 

Combining human stories with expert analysis, this documentary will share the story of repair: why it matters, why it’s slowly being forgotten, and why we need it for a more sustainable, equitable, and inclusive world.

Our consumption is increasing. 
 
Our planet needs repair. 
 
And so do we.
