FREE SCREENING AND DISCUSSION OF "CLIMATE REFUGEES" Among films screened at Planet in Focus a few months ago in Toronto was Climate Refugees; it then launched the Amnesty International Film Festival. It is a powerful, sobering film. This documentary was filmed in Bangladesh, Belgium, Chad, China, Denmark, Fiji, France, Germany, Holland, Ireland, Kenya, the Maldives, Poland, Switzerland,Tuvalu, UK and the US. It examines the creation - and migration - of hundreds of millions of climate refugees that will be displaced as a result of climate change. "Climate change is the threat multiplier for overpopulation, over-consumption and lack of natural resources. Our mission is to create a platform that will illuminate the facts about climate refugees, their lack of international protection, our national security issues and solutions to these civilization-altering issues." writer/director/producer Michael Nash Over the past 2 months a number of us in Toronto have collaborated to bring this important film to Toronto again. You are invited to:
