Fillmaker Josh Fox, made famous by his film Gasland that woke up the world to the dangers of coal-seam gas mining, has made a new film aimed at people who believe climate change has already past the tipping point.
What do you do when you recognise that despite all our best efforts we are likely to see major sea level rises, widespread extinction and mass human displacement all in our lifetimes?
Crawl under the doona?
Or try to look inwards to discover that side of humanity that climate can’t change?
Many so-called ‘doomers’ are facing this conundrum. Having directed their energies to battle climate change, increasing numbers of activists are saying it’s already too late to avoid many of its terrible effects.
In his new movie, titled How to Let Go of the World (and Love All the Things Climate Can’t Change) Fox continues his typically personal style, travelling to 12 countries on six continents, and asking what is it that climate change can’t destroy?
What values and creativity are so deep within us that no storm can take them away?
The movie that the New York Times dubbed ‘tough to watch… tough to consider… tough to ignore,’ will have its Northern Rivers debut at the Brunswick Picture House on Wednesday night at 7pm.
Tickets are $14/$12 concession and can be booked online here.
