We would rather be ruined than changed. We would rather die in our dread, than climb the cross of the moment, and let our illusions die. This is the quote that starts the beautiful documentary on climate change, capitalism and environment.
With topics and subjects like climate change, environmental crisis, capitalism and modern world, the documentary features interviews with Derrick Jensen, Jill Stein, Bill McKibben, Gary Snyder and many other top academics, scientist and intellectuals.
Taking a title from W.H. Auden’s Poem, “The Age of Anxiety”, the documentary delivers a powerful message about where we are at the moment, and where we could end up if we don’t change something regarding our lifestyle.
The truth is out there, and it is up to us to do something. Divided into seven chapters, the documentary focuses on several topics, including the Rare Earth Theory, but also human impact on the biosphere.
All the scientists discuss for 80 minutes, and at the end, you will find out the answer to the question “will our species survive catastrophic climate change”?
