What a Line-Up of Climate Action Films

Climate change has almost been forgotten in the face of the Covid-19 pandemic. The newly created Bushfires Royal Commission reminds us that the mega-fires of summer 2020 are the “new normal” and that climate action can’t wait.

Start your Climate Action film viewing with Okavango – River of Dreams to see the fragility – and beauty – of this Southern African ecological gem, one of the greatest rivers on Earth. Winner of the 2020 Washington Environmental Film Festival Shared Earth Foundation Award for Advocacy. This is what we must protect.

Wilder than Wild looks closely at the role of climate change in the recent mega-fires of California – and the climate action solutions that are being implemented on the ground there. A clear message for us in Australia.

Burning In The Sun. This fascinating film of one man’s quest to bring solar power to impoverished Mali villagers places renewable energy in a human context. Not to be missed.

Expedition To The End Of The World. For a change of pace join this eclectic mix of scientists, artists, and philosophers who set off to investigate the rapidly melting massifs of North-East Greenland. Visually ravishing, thought-provoking and benefitting from just enough playfulness to set it apart from the nature-doc herd, this film will have you discussing and chuckling in equal measure.
