Pass the Mic: Centering People of Color in the Climate Justice Conversation

January 21, 2022 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm

THIS Friday, January 21st at 2:30 pm PT at check out this Climate Storytelling Panel as part of Sundance 2022.

Mark your calendars! Join a virtual panel hosted by @staymacro exploring how film and storytelling tools can help us find courage in the face of climate chaos and center communities of color. This powerful discussion will feature filmmakers and voices from the Sundance premiering film “To The End” as well as artists at the forefront of movements for climate justice.

The panel will also provide an exclusive preview of a soon-to-be-released tool, the Climate Storytelling Playbook, the first-ever climate storytelling guide for screenwriters – a resource developed in conversation with over 100 TV and film writers.

Watch on 1/21 at 2:30 pm PT. Open to All.

Also featured will be a clip from the new film, Amazonia 2041, which takes viewers on a journey set in 2041, looking back at how an indigenous-led movement succeeded in permanently protecting the Amazon Sacred Headwaters region.

We know that narratives of extractive capitalism have been the norm in our popular culture: the story that some bodies – human bodies, animal bodies, forest, mountain, and ocean bodies – can be exploited for the benefit of a few privileged bodies. But in this now global climate crisis, the old narratives aren’t’ holding up.

How do we tell new and great stories in the age of climate change? How do we authentically write about what it’s like to live in the world right now?
