Thursday 08.10.20 / 19.00 / Kayak Bar
With COVID-19’s all-encompassing presence, some of the other crises that we face have moved to the background – perhaps with good reason – but we think it’s important that we don’t completely lose sight of some of the other challenges that we are faced with, especially the climate crisis.
All the short films in this block use different approaches to shed light on the subject – music videos, animation, documentary and a more artistic approach – but they all have something to tell, something they need to share with the world.
All the films are screened with English subtitles.
After the screening, there will be a short presentation by Pernille Haagen from World Wildlife Fund
about some of the challenges that the global ocean climates are facing today.
