"During his four-decade career as a photographer and explorer, James Balog has focused his lens on the complex relationship between humans and nature. Human activity has now surpassed all other forces shaping our world. In an arresting new documentary from the producers of Racing Extinction, The Cove and Chasing Ice, environmental photographer James Balog captures the lives of people on the front lines of climate change. With rare compassion and heart, this film inspires us to re-evaluate our relationship with the natural world.
The screening will open with a short video documenting the impact of development on the Beaver Lake Cree nation https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lG4-kjguKws.
Following the screening Lyn Adamson, co-chair of ClimateFast, will speak on climate activism at a crucial time. She will introduce the Kitchen Table Climate Conversation campaign, designed to bring our communities together to address our climate challenges with the knowledge and tools we need to make a difference."
