Climate Change in Atlantic Canada

Wed & Thu, Nov 26 & 27 / 7 pm
Introduction and Q&A with Ian Mauro
Directed by Ian Mauro
2013, Canada, 45 min

Across Atlantic Canada, coastlines and communities are already being adversely affected by climate change due to increasing storm intensity, surging sea levels, coastal erosion and flooding. Preparations are now being made for the super storms of the future, but this will not be easy, as ocean levels are expected to increase over one meter globally by the year 2100 due to melting Polar Regions and warmer waters undergoing “thermal expansion”. This film, shot across Atlantic Canada, represents a consultation with over 100 stakeholders, and documents their real world experiences and efforts to mitigate and adapt to climate change. Despite being on the frontlines, Atlantic Canadians show that solutions to this pressing global issue are within our grasp, provided we decide to act. Ian Mauro co-directed Qapirangajuq: Inuit Knowledge and Climate Change with acclaimed Inuk filmmaker Zacharias Kunuk (Atanarjuat: The Fast Runner) and currently teaches in the Department of Geography at the University of Winnipeg.

Plays with:

Suzuki Tour / Dir. Ian Mauro, 2014, Canada, 10 min / Over the past year, David Suzuki and Winnipeg filmmaker Ian Mauro toured Climate Change in Atlantic Canada across the country as a fundraiser for local environmental groups and to raise awareness. This piece follows the tour, documenting the discussion with Suzuki and citizens regarding this pressing issue facing society.

Reviews

Compelling. The local perspectives provide a warning that social, economic and ecological costs are rapidly mounting and we must take climate change seriously.
