About the Movie

David Suzuki, iconic Canadian scientist, educator, broadcaster and activist delivers a last lecture -- what he describes as a distillation of my life and thoughts, my legacy, what I want to say before I die. Filmed before a live audience, in front of a memory box of moving, distilled images, he articulates a core, urgent message: we have exhausted the limits of the biosphere and it is imperative that we re-think our relationship with the natural world. Suzuki looks unflinchingly at the strains on our interconnected web of life and out of our dire present circumstances, he offers up a blueprint for sustainability and survival. The film interweaves the lecture with scenes from the places and events in Suzuki's life. As such, the film is a biography of ideas forged by the major social, scientific, cultural and political events of the past 70 years.

Fresh: Although Suzuki's message that humans have exhausted the resources of the biosphere and need to rethink their relationship with the natural world may be a familiar one, it bears repeating. – Alissa Simon, Variety, Oct 1, 2010

Force of Nature

A fascinating look at the lived experiences and the mind of a true forward thinker. It's the final chapter of Dr. Suzuki's public life and a summary of the most important points of a long and distinguished public persona.

The Full Measure

This is truly a great documentary about a great Canadian. The movie is simple and to the point just like Dr. Suzuki.

It is at times a very personal and intimate view of a very public man. He relentlessy gives us the message about the environment, one we sadly need to hear and often (contrary to reviews by anti-science types here).

Watch it!, then watch it again.


This is a must see for any human being that cares about the world that they live in. I remember David Suzuki as a child and now to see the work he has accomplished in his lifetime, leaves me amazed and fascinated. I have never heard such a compelling speech in my entire life, eloquent and succinct.
