Climate of Change/Simon Armitage Check Availability

From the producers of An Inconvenient Truth, CLIMATE OF CHANGE is a rich and inspiring documentary that takes us around the world to find the ordinary people taking action in the fight to save our environment. With beautiful narration written by British poet Simon Armitage and mellifluously voiced by Tilda Swinton (Chronicles of Narnia, Adaptation), the film seamlessly explores how teenagers in India, villagers in Papua New Guinea and Africa, self-described “hillbillies” in Appalachia and a PR expert in London are harnessing their global thinking to act locally within their respective communities.

In what Variety calls “half eco-docu, half art…social-action cinema with a twist,” director Brian Hill and his cinematographers create a real sense of ambiance in each of the countries and communities they visit. Conversations with West Virginians are punctuated by footage of mountaintops surrounding their homes being dynamited; Papua New Guineans talk among the giant trees being decimated by commercial logging and a visit to the Global Seed Vault built in the Norwegian permafrost in Svalbard, Norway is nothing short of ethereal.
