In 2007, I had the pleasure of meeting Ernest Callenbach who wrote the original green sci-fi novel in 1975 – Ecotopia. This interview was conducted in January 2008.
Ernest is a brilliant, insightful man. He was generous with his time and very supportive of my efforts to bring ideas like his into being in the form of fictional film imagery. I think of him as the wisest elder of my tribe. But, he doesn’t know either where the rest of our green sci-fi filmmaking tribe is hiding. Do you?
