Timothy S. Bennett

An artist and filmmaker who has lived in North Carolina for eighteen years. Born and raised in rural Michigan, he began his inquiry into environmental and cultural issues in the late 80s.

His talent for “big-picture thinking,” along with his ability to see through the taboos, denials, and orthodoxies of our culture, combined with his poetic writing style, makes for a documentary experience that is both compelling and informative.

In addition to writing and directing What a Way to Go, he edits an email distribution list of current articles and commentary on the state of the environment, “resource” depletion, global politics and the economy, and cultural insanity.
