Youth Unstoppable – the rise of the Global Youth Climate Movement (free screening)
Thu Oct 10, 2019, Ottawa, ON
7PM, Bytowne Cinema, Rideau St, Ottawa
Youth Unstoppable takes us inside the rise of the Global Youth Climate Movement. Canadian Slater Jewell-Kemker was 15 when she began documenting the untold stories of youth on the front lines of climate change activism, refusing to let their future slip away.
Over more than a decade, set against stunning visuals of a planet in crisis, this award-winning film follows the growth of a diverse network of youth, rising up to shape the world they will live in. Through the lens of Jewell-Kemker’s camera, we see the struggles, events, and firsthand effects on youth fighting to be heard, both at home and within the complex process of UN Climate Change negotiations.
From flood-ravaged villages in Nepal to luxury hotels in Cancún, from the tailings ponds of the Alberta Tar Sands to the riots of Copenhagen, culminating with the intense and defining events at the 21st UN Climate Change Conference in Paris, this urgent and timely documentary shows us a powerful vision for the future of our planet and the young people who will lead us there.
A joint presentation of The 30th One World Film Festival, Our Time, Green Screen Ottawa, and the Group of 78.
A panel discussion on Canadian responses to the climate crisis will follow the screening.
