Immuto (Change) (40 min)
Produced by Island Reach Organization (2020)
KEY THEMES: Global warming effects on coastal and island nations, rising sea levels, community organising.
Shot in 2019 in Vanuatu, Viet Nam, Morocco, the EU, UK, and US, Immuto features stories of crisis and action told by compelling changemakers living and working on the frontlines. More than just compelling stories, however, these agents of change address viewers directly, calling for the mutual recognition and solidarity required for our varied yet interrelated struggles to safeguard our planet’s biodiversity, adapt to the rapid changes, demand climate justice, and reduce carbon footprints.
QUESTIONS TO DEBATE:
– What do you think about this quote: ”If you have come here to help me, you are wasting your time. But if you have come because your liberation is bound up with mine, then let us work together”
– What is ecocide? What effects would it have if ratified according to the activists in the film? What effects would it have according to you?
– Does an individual have a responsibility to fight climate change? Why or why not?
– How can climate change be seen and felt in your country?
