Impacts of climate change are disproportionate, depending upon the individual’s geographical location, age, gender, political & socio-economic conditions, and the privileges that come with them. These important multifaceted aspects of climate change are often lost when put together as data. Films, stories and art, on the other hand, give a face to every data point, and humanize them through unique real-life experiences.
Our project brings an anthology film featuring three documentary films made by regional filmmakers from India and Pakistan. The films reflect the multi-faceted experiences of climate change, revealing its impact at both an individual and community level in these regions. Avoiding scripts, our documentary films evolve based on lived experiences, human emotions, empathy and scientific evidence. By showcasing our films in UK, South Asia and beyond, we aim to bolster youth voices and deepen their awareness of, connection to, and inspiration to address climate change issues and work for localized, inclusive, compassionate and sustainable solutions for economic and social welfare.
