Last Call tells the story of the rise, fall and final rebirth, of ‘Limits to Growth,’ one of the most controversial and inspiring environmental books of our time. It asks one of the most important and difficult questions our civilization has been forced to ask: how can we have infinite growth on a finite planet? 

Based on a report by a team of brave scientists from MIT, the book became a best seller world-wide. The film hears of the book’s journey from its mentors Aurelio Peccei and Jay Forrester – and the authors – Dennis and Donella Meadows, Jørgen Randers and Bill Behrens - all different personalities united by their care for future generations.

Despite the author’s analysis, economic and political short-termism has delayed action, and we are left on the precipice of a global crisis. So, what should be done now that we are beyond the limits?

Supported by extraordinary archive materials, The Limits to Growth authors provide a provocative insight on the reasons of the global crisis and share their visions of our common future. Is there still time for a last call?



WASTE NOT (26 min) is an award winning film about where your garbage goes, who sorts it for you, and what it is worth if it isn't just tossed into landfill. It's easier and cheaper to retrieve gold from old computers for instance, than to dig it up. Organics can be used to create fertiliser and green electricity and yet each Australian sends half a tonne of food waste to landfill each year where it is contaminated with chemicals and e-waste. We recycle only 50% of all our waste.

SACRED ECONOMICS (12 min) traces the history of money from ancient gift economies to modern capitalism, revealing how the money system has contributed to alienation, competition, and scarcity, destroyed community, and necessitated endless growth.
