In This Climate: Brett Story Selects

Series Site

In this climate, what images are necessary? And what might catastrophe want of cinema, anyway? As the capitalist fantasy of resource scarcity finds reinforcement in the crisis of ecological collapse, might our art leave clues for those future generations seeking explanation? From colonial plunder to collective melancholy, from nihilistic hedonism to airplanes full of fish, the films in this program expand our notions of both “climate” and “crisis” in order to provoke urgent questions about how we live now, and might live later.—Brett Story, series programmer
