Beyond the Brink| 20mins
Director: Ross Harrison | Producer: Ross Harrison
Focus Years: 2010 | Country: United Kingdom
Beyond the Brink was made between 2009 and 2010 as a personal investigation into the climate change debate. It was filmed at a time when climate change received massive media attention and controversies circulated about its scientific reporting (ones which, in fact, should have cast no doubts about the validity of the science or the reality of the risks). Since then, the attention has wained while the urgency of the challenge has only increased.
This 20 minute film charts the knowns and the unknowns of the science, the risks, and the reasons to be hopeful for the future. Interviews with Sir David Attenborough, Mark Lynas, David Shukman, Prof Dieter Helm, and the UK Youth Climate Coalition among others, offer fresh perspectives on a subject that - despite slipping from the media spotlight - divides the public, and yet is still meaningless to many.
