SummerFest - Climate ravages the Earth by 2055. Why didn't we stop climate change when we had the chance?
Oscar-nominated Pete Postlethwaite plays an old man living in the devastated world of 2055 in this documentary-drama-animation hybrid from Director Franny Armstrong and Oscar-winning Producer John Battsek.
Runaway climate change has ravaged the planet by 2055. Pete plays the founder of The Global Archive, a storage facility located in the (now melted) Arctic, preserving all of humanityвЂ™s achievements in the hope that the planet might one day be habitable again. Pulling together clips of archive news and documentary from 1950-2008 to build a message showing what went wrong and why, PeteвЂ™s exploration surfaces compelling footage and complex issues facing us in our world today. He asks: Why didnвЂ™t we stop climate change when we had the chance?
