Climate Chaos in the South: The Victims' Story| 52mins
Director: Geert De Belder | Producer: Wereldmediatheek
Focus Years: 2009 | Country: Belgium
“Climate Chaos in the South” is another film on climate change, indeed, but this one is about people, not polar bears or glaciers. Victims in the south (Ecuador, Burkina Faso, Togo, Bangladesh) explain how their livelihoods are threatened because seasons have a mind on their own, downpours and cyclones destroy all that stands, droughts scorch the earth, the rising sea is taking back land, and sweet water is terribly lacking. International experts (like Lord Nicholas Stern, Michael Gorbachev, Pavan Sukhdev and Jean-Pascal van Ypersele) sketch the broader context. What originally appeared to be purely an environment problem is only the beginning of an unimaginable humanitarian catastrophe. That something has to be done to mitigate climate change is obvious, but that the south will also have to adapt, is inevitable. Meanwhile, hundreds of thousands leave their home, in search of a still viable place.
