Do Something: Responding to Climate Change
Ackland Film Forum | Spring 2023

We are living in the age of the Anthropocene, a geological epoch shaped by human activity. And yet, we, as individuals, and as a society, have difficulty addressing the climate change that we helped create. In this series, we’ll consider films in which humans respond to climate change. We’ll see people who escape floodwaters, fight off mining companies, care for plants, launch protests, and simply take a walk in the woods. Instead of proposing a single way to address climate change, these films will offer us ways to contemplate the relationship between ourselves, the world we live in, and the world we want it to be.

Presented in connection with Ghost of a Dream: Aligned by the Sun (through the revolution) on view at the Ackland Art Museum through May 28, 2023.
