As climate change has become, more than ever, an urgent global issue, filmmakers are capturing the human impact on the environment to increase our awareness and urge us to make significant changes to preserve and protect the planet.
To coincide with Earth month, CinéSalon for the Climate will showcase recent French films that look at the beauty and fragility of the environment, the impact of destruction caused by humans, and how activism and improved production practices can help reverse the damage before it is too late.
The series will present two special screenings: The Velvet Queen on April 5, in partnership with the New York WILD Film Festival, followed by a Q&A and reception; and the NY premiere of Bernie Krause, A Life with The Great Animal Orchestra, on April 26, in partnership with Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain, followed by a Q&A with director Vincent Tricon. The series will also feature the US premieres of Animal and Above Water, and screenings of Ice and the Sky and Hello World!.
Together, these films shine an important light on the intricate relationship between all living beings and the environment, and our responsibility for the future.
