Extreme weather. Sea level rise. Water wars. Wild fires.

There aren’t many people who won’t admit there’s some “weather weirding” going on. But is today’s evident climate change nothing more than a natural cycle? Or is it caused by humans? How will it impact society? What can we do about it?

This compelling documentary, by the Youth Climate Report—which premiered at the United Nations’ COP19 climate summit in Warsaw this month—answers these questions in a way most people can understand. I recommend you put aside the time to watch this film!

About Youth Climate Report.youth climate report logo

Youth Climate Report gives global youth the skills and tools to report on and so contribute to the dialogue around the science of, and policy responses to, climate change.

Their training empowers global youth to participate in the climate change dialogue at the very highest policy level (the UNFCCC) and so become knowledge ambassadors in their communities, while at the same time learning essential digital (journalistic) story-telling skills.

Youth Climate Report contributes to increasing global understanding of climate change impacts, adaptation and mitigation.

Through crowd-sourced film reports by youth, they contribute to bridging the gap between science and policy on climate change.

Unacceptable Levels

Unacceptable Levels examines the results of the chemical revolution of the 1940s through the eyes of affable filmmaker Ed Brown, a father seeking to understand the world in which he and his wife are raising their children. To create this debut documentary, one man and his camera traveled extensively to find and interview top minds in the fields of science, advocacy, and law. Weaving their testimonies into a compelling narrative, Brown presents us with the story of how the chemical revolution brought us to where we are, and of where, if we’re not vigilant, it may take us.

Official Selection Sundance Film Festival.

I Am

“I AM” is the story of a successful Hollywood director Tom Shadyac, who experienced a life threatening head injury, and his ensuing journey to try and answer two very basic questions, “What’s wrong with our world?” and “What can we do about it?”. Tom visits some of today’s great minds, including authors, poets, teachers, religious leaders and scientists searching for the fundamental problem that causes all of the other problems, while simultaneously reflecting on his own life choices of excess, greed, and eventual healing.
