 [RE]FRAMING REPAIR 

a documentary

We live in an era of mass consumption.

We buy new. When things break, we throw them out.

We buy new again.

Our resources are finite.
Our world is changing. 
We need repair.

Repair connects individual empowerment to environmental sustainability. 

It strengthens social bonds, it gives our things a second life.


And while we've repaired things for all of human history, this way of life is dying. 

Combining human stories with expert analysis, the [Re]framing Repair Documentary will share this critical story.

Why it matters.

Why it's disappearing.

Why we need it for a more equitable, inclusive world.

EMPOWERMENT

Through creative exploration and problem solving, repair increases our sense of self-reliance. It teaches us to find solutions, and empowers us in other areas of our lives.

ENVIRONMENT
 

 By keeping products working for longer, repair minimizes resource extraction and reduces landfill waste. It decreases pollution and carbon emissions.
