Thoreau and Me
by Cédric Taling




Overview -
A timely, readable inquiry into the causes and consequences of climate breakdown

Some heavy reading on the ecological and climate emergency leads C dric, a 40-something painter living in Paris, to question his life choices. In a state of vulnerability, racked with eco-anxiety, he is contacted by the spirit of writer, environmentalist, and Walden author Henry David Thoreau.
As their Socratic dialogue continues, C dric notices striking parallels between the suffocating commercialism of mid-19th-century America and the unsustainable, alienating, tech-driven consumerism of today. Both societies are shaped by a single priority--economic growth--that squanders the earth's natural resources and separates us from nature. Inspired by Thoreau's return to nature, C dric begins dreaming of his own retreat from urban life to a self-sufficient cabin in the woods.
