“The World is Dying and We’re Filming It”

the-world-is-dying 6 PM, December 11, 2016

The Wooly, 20 North Main Street

Gainesville, FL

See Jacob Gordon’s trailer for “The World is Dying” at!

Please join us for a free screening of fourteen original short films by the students of UF instructor Lauren DeFilippo’s Fall 2016 course “Creating the Cinema of Climate Change.” 

Rather than approaching climate change as a scientific, political, or policy problem, the students of “Creating the Cinema of Climate Change” were tasked with reframing environmental crisis as a moral and creative challenge. Over the course of the semester students considered how best we may respond to the realities of changing climate, collectively and as individuals. This requires not only scientific and technical resolve but also artistic invention and a re-evaluation of many of the cultural narratives that shape our consciousness. The students’ films demonstrate our need to find better ways to tell new stories fitted to the world in which we live and the world to come.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A session with the filmmakers.

All ICC events are free and open to the public. No advance registration is required.
