A personal experience of grief collides with the more collective anguish caused by the climate crisis in this thoughtful and graceful documentary by Jennifer Abbott, the B.C.-based filmmaker and writer best known as part of the team behind THE CORPORATION and its acclaimed recent sequel. Here Abbott delves deep into her own sorrow over the loss of a loved one while widening her film’s scope to include urgent stories of change, disappearance, devastation and hope from all over the globe. The stunning images and powerful insights lend further richness to a film that’s unique in its scope and impact.
