The New Climate | Sunday, January 22, 2:30 p.m
We are living in a new climate, and not just the one created by global warming. As our political outlook shifts toward deeper denial and corporate interests work to obscure the story and the science, how can visual storytellers create new narratives that change the conversation, the culture, and possibly the world? Former vice president Al Gore, global entrepreneur and philanthropist Jeff Skoll, scientist and broadcaster Dr. David Suzuki, former Maldives president Mohamed Nasheed, filmmaker Heather Rae, and moderator Amy Goodman discuss how filmmakers can elevate understanding and urgency among policy makers and the public alike.
