"The Revolution Starts With You"

"Society is tired of waiting for slow moving politicians and corporations to implement change, but the truth is we don't need to wait. From the bottom up, the time has come to change our own worlds starting at home and to send a message to the polluters that we have all chosen a green path. Viewing Garbage! The Revolution Starts at Home empowers audiences to make those changes, now, by making simple lifestyle choices." - National Post


"Talking Trash on the Big Screen!"

"Filmmaker Andrew Nisker succinctly puts a vast amount of past, current and ongoing environmental damage and the growing catastrophe we are all contributing to into one remarkably enjoyable film. Nisker skillfully shifts focus from melting glaciers and oil slicks to 'any neighborhood,' 'any town;' and essentially, right into your own home, so that citizens can connect the dots between their actions and the environment and be inspired to change their polluting ways." - The Thrive Times


"Putting Garbage! Back Into Movies"

"As they discover where their garbage goes and at what cost to the environment, the Mcdonald household engages the audience with an 'open-door reality-check.' Meticulous tracking of consumption and waste, right down to the children's lunchboxes result in not only candid comments, but also some rather enlightening and even humorous moments."

Bio

In late 2007 a new kind of activist burst into the international scene with the release of his award winning film Garbage! the Revolution Starts at Home.

After the film release, Andrew Nisker was snatched up quickly by Fox News and in his first news hit, on the set in New York, America watched in amazement as the reporter wearily dumped a days worth of her consumption habits out onto the table for all eyes to see. Much the same as the McDonald family did in the film Garbage!, the reporter wanted to understand just how much waste she was producing daily so that she could reflect and reevaluate how to reduce her environmental impact. Andrew knew, from that moment onward, that his little film could change the world, one home at a time.

Since Fox News, Andrew has traveled extensively screening Garbage! and inspiring audiences to reduce the amount of pollution they create. Borrowing from his mentor Bob Hunter’s mantra, The Revolution Starts at Home, Mr. Nisker’s underlying message is simple and easily comprehendible. We CAN all make a significant difference in the war against Global Warming by starting with our own personal environments, home, work, and school.

Garbage! has been translated into over half a dozen languages, has won awards at numerous film festivals, and premiered on fellow activist Robert Redford’s Sundance Channel. Andrew was inspired by audience enthusiasm while on the road and through the support he received via his online community. This encouraging response led him to make a second film entitled, Chemerical – Redefining Clean for a New Generation.

Troubled by the thought of exposing himself and his family to everyday chemicals through cleaning, cosmetic, and personal care products, Nisker wanted to experience life in a toxic free environment, without all that destructive residue. A new family was recruited and, like Andrew, went through the process of detoxifying their home and bodies. The result, not only did the Family feel better but they also saved money and have significantly lessened their homes toxic output into the environment. Chemerical premiered at the Whistler Film Festival in December, 2009 and relished in rave reviews by critics and audiences alike.
