Climate Refugees 2

The highly anticipated sequel to the award winning film Climate Refugees. The new film titled Climate Refugees 2.

“A film about the human face of climate change.”

Synopsis

Climate Refugees 2 is an important and timely documentary that investigates the unbelievable plight of people around the world displaced by climatically-induced environmental disasters. The film will continue where the first multi award winning film “Climate Refugees” stopped. The global documentary will illuminate the human face of climate change as civilization now finds itself, facing the confluence of overpopulation, lack of resources and a changing climate.

Climate Refugees 2 will be a proactive, solutions based documentary that will illuminate a blue print, next steps forward approach to litigate, mitigate and adapt to our changing world.

The sequel will continue to travel around the world interviewing several of the million climate refugees now on the run, along with scholars, politicians and the like, “Climate Refugees” brings to light the heart-wrenching truth of what is quickly becoming humankind’s greatest challenge and a huge security risk for G8 countries. A cautionary tale, the film will demonstrate that climate change isn’t a political issue; it’s a geopolitical one, one that literally transcends the concepts of nationhood and ethnicity. Though on-camera film crew conversations, off-camera narration, sit down interviews, visits to compelling locations, sweeping magical landscape drone footage, and events, the series will take viewers on a journey across America and unto the frontline battle of the climate struggle.
