DESCRIPTION:

In the year that Scotland hosted COP26, curator and director Emily Munro searched for the roots of the climate crisis in our history. In her film, archive footage evocatively portrays a country shaped by demands for energy and economic growth, while a dramatic soundtrack amplifies the voices of the past.

Curator and director Emily Munro has been searching for the roots of the climate crisis in our history. In her film, archive footage evocatively portrays a country shaped by demands for energy and economic growth, while a dramatic soundtrack amplifies the voices of the past.

The film looks at Scotland’s post-war history through the lens of current debate, inviting audiences on a journey to revisit the promises of the past and how they relate to our future on this planet. Was climate change inevitable? Can we break free from a boom-and-bust mentality? Are we able to adapt to ensure a healthy and sustainable future for generations to come?
