Looking for online environmental video recommendations.

I'm looking for awesome short environmental videos available online, to be included in an environmental video festival. Thoughts?

I'm hoping to put together a film festival where everything screened is an environmental video found online. Here are more specifics of what I'm looking for:

- Video is available streaming online.
- Video is somehow focused on the environment/environmentalism/environmental topics.
- Video is short (less than 15 minutes).
- Video is rad.

As an example of what I'm looking for, here's a great video from Brazil. Though this video is, your suggestion does not need to be funny or animated or foreign - I'm very open to content/theme/feel, so long as it meets the above requirements.

Finally, please don't suggest The Story of Stuff or any of Annie Leonard's other work - her work is great, but I've already received this recommendation 8,000 times.

Thanks so much for your time and help!

This five-minute HD trailer for Planet Earth. Gorgeous music, spectacular visuals, and no voice-over work to distract from the images.

Frac Attack: Dawn of the Watershed is a bit longer, but fits all other criteria!

It violates one of your rules, being 18:33, but Plastic Bag by Ramin Bahrani might interest you. Werner Herzog stars as the bag. I'm not even kidding.

Just a teaser trailer, but it could be viewed as a self-contained short as well:

Thanks for all your suggestions, everyone! @AmbroseChapel, I'm so glad you posted that video, despite my rules - it's amazing, and it's totally going to be the headliner. Thanks!
