February started with one of our most beloved events – Ċine’Ambjent Environmental Film Festival. It was the second time we hosted the event, and this year the main topic was climate-induced migration. Climate change is causing 20 million people to be forced out of their homes or country every year, and the chosen films have delved into the theme of climate-induced migration.
The documentaries shown told the story of climate activists and indigenous communities from different countries in the global south who are leading the fight against extreme weather events due to climate change, corporate exploitation of natural resources or to protect their water from diversion and contamination.
On Day 1 we screened
- Thank You for the Rain, Kenya (2017) + Discussion with Dr Stefano Moncada
