This film … shows our complete ignorance to the detrimental consequences of the mass use of herbicides in the past to the very dark horrors of the souls this chemical has claimed.
ORANGE WITNESS (2012)
Orange Witness has been seen by over 1 million viewers through broadcasts on CBC DOCUMENTARY CHANNEL and film festival screenings where it garnered two awards in 2013.
Through social outreach, Orange Witness is giving voice to the numerous people who have been affected by exposure to Agent Orange at work and home – a number that is still yet to be quantified.
Garbage provides a lot of information, including some facts that may surprise viewers about their effect on the environment and the environment’s effect on them.

The film is informative and easy to follow without being overwhelming. Nisker’s passion for change is refreshing and original. Garbage! presents a fantastic experiment about household waste paths and is a must-see for anyone interested in environmental issues; Nisker really does prove that ‘the revolution starts at home.’
GARBAGE! THE REVOLUTION STARTS AT HOME (2007)
My first film, Garbage! The Revolution Starts At Home, cast an average family and asked them to keep their trash for three – yes, three – whole months, all to get a better idea of how much waste we really do create.
Self-funded, the film touched a nerve with international audiences, helping me to break out as a filmmaker and showing that environmental documentaries, especially one about everyday things, were really something people were interested in.
Since its release, I’ve seen thousands of students and their teachers put on their own version of the challenge seen in the film – whether at home, in the classroom, or across their entire school. The film’s message even got the attention of some pretty major companies like Walmart, Tim Hortons, and McDonald’s, who approached me to host screenings for employees and inspire them to create waste reduction programs at work and home.
