still The White Lung City (Marco Pando, 2009)

Climate Grief (shorts) + Evanne Nowak

Cinema Ecologica: Climate Grief (shorts) + Evanne Nowak

In this short film programme, moderator Evanne Nowak talks to filmmakers and the audience about emotions associated with climate change: fear, anger, sadness, shame, a sense of powerlessness.

Instead of talking only about facts, numbers and technical solutions, the moderator asks to allow confusion and feelings of loss. And not to run away from the feelings, because they are a sign of our commitment and a step toward solidarity with the climate and non-human others.
