In Detail

Many films about climate change can be, understandably, downbeat, but director Damon Gameau presents an entertaining, informative and optimistic documentary, structured as a letter to his four-year-old daughter Velvet.

She will be 21 in the year 2040 and he travels the world to find the best solutions already being employed or in the pipeline to reverse climate catastrophe to help give her a more hopeful, sustainable future. Renewable energy, agriculture, diet, marine permaculture and the empowerment of women and girls through education are all explored.

Green Screen: Eco Film Fest
Coming up with ideas for Chichester’s contribution to The Big Green Week, a national event to raise awareness of our climate change emergency, taking place at the end of September, thoughts by the city’s various eco groups quickly turned to film. No surprise there as film is such a powerful medium to inspire, educate, expose, entertain and call to action. So, we are delighted to be teaming up with Chichester Cinema at New Park to put on four films on Mondays from September 19 to October 10. Look out for the Green Screen logo. These stunning documentaries from around the world have been carefully chosen to provide cinema-goers with hope, optimism and solutions while facing up to and exploring the damage we have wreaked on the planet. They might give you a renewed sense of wonder and respect for our natural world, they may encourage you to rise up, they may enthuse you to reset your life or make changes to the everyday. We really hope so.
