Özet

Capitalism, encouraging continuous growth by ignoring ecological limits, exploits all the resources of the planet by bringing the developments in science and technology to the service of the capital. There is a need for a social sciences approach to reveal ecological problems that can not be handled independently from political economy, to be discussed by broad masses and to produce solutions. When eco-cinema and eco-criticism are considered as important for the struggle for social and environmental justice for all living creatures bringing ecosystem to the fruition, building an ecocentric paradigm instead of a anthropocentric world view, considering the power of creating awareness and publicity of cultural texts reaching wider masses such as cinema role to be undertaken.
