CLIMATE OF CHANGE

By D.E.Levine

A Tribeca Film Festival selection

Director: Brian Hill
Writer: Simon Amitage
Cast: Tilda Swinton
Producer: Katie Bailiff
Executive Producer: Kit Hawkins and Kevin Wall
Running Time: 85 Minutes
Country of Origin: USA
Language: English
Genre: Documentary

A visually stunning film, Climate of Change is narrated beautifully by Tilda Swinton.
The film is an environmental documentary that profiles individuals around the globe that are thinking globally and acting locally.

In this film we see youngsters in India who are educating their communities in reducing the use of plastics, while a Togo activist is fighting deforestation and Appalachians are organizing against mountaintop mining.

Credited to four directors of photography, the film is consistently breathtaking regardless of what is shown, and that includes a recycling plant in Mumbai and the Svalbard Global Seed Vault in Norway.

To those who say the problems are too big, Director Hill shows that small, local acts can make a significant difference.
