The Story of Stuff launches its International Page
Launched on December 4, 2007, the Story of Stuff website has now been viewed by 4.8 million people in 228 countries and territories around the world as well as in thousands of classrooms, conferences, offices, churches, synagogues, public TV channels and community meetings. The film has received a phenomenal response from all over the world, inspiring additional films, study groups, songs, theater pieces and most importantly, a renewed public discourse about alternatives to the toxics-laden, consumer-frenzied focus of today's mainstream economy and culture.
In response to literally thousands of requests for translations, The Story of Stuff Project and Free Range Studios worked with friends around the world to translate the film into many languages. Ply Media donated its services to add the subtitling feature to the new international web page, allowing the film to reach beyond English-speaking communities. The international page currently includes subtitled versions of the film in 10 languages, plus English at the request of many hearing-impaired viewers. Additional languages, both in subtitled and dubbed versions, will be added to the international page throughout 2009.
The initial subtitled translations on the Story of Stuff international page are: Arabic, Dutch, English, French, German, Hebrew, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Taiwanese, and Thai.
The creators of the Story of Stuff will continue to add to the Story of Stuff website, so please check back for more translations and other good stuff during the coming year. If you would like to get on our mailing list for regular updates, please sign up at www.storyofstuff.com.
