More info on the in-progress “End:Civ” at submedia. The film is based on the work and thought of anti-civilization author/activist Derrick Jensen, who was interviewed at length by Jay Babcock in Arthur No. 23 (July 2006). That interview is available online, here. (We have very, very few copies of Arthur No. 23 in stock. They are available for $100 each at the Arthur store, here.)
