Global warming. Climate crisis. What do these words mean anyway? And what impacts do they have on biodiversity and on the planet? How can we help prevent them? What can we do today to design the story of the future? The animated film Stars on the Sea (acronym SOS) is a sign of alert that dives straight into our emotions. Telling the story of a family that tries to survive in a flooded building, it makes clear the emergency of our actions and shows our power of adaptability. Additionally, Plano Nacional das Artes and IndieJunior created a space for conversation with the public at large that brings together people with diverse profiles to an (in)disciplinary conversation, from young people to activists, teachers, a director and a biologist – different voices that affirm our hope, but also raise awareness that the future is today.
This year’s film-debate takes place at Culturgest, next Friday May 6th, at 6 pm. The debate will be entirely conducted in Portuguese. The entry is free, but it requires registration:
Stars on the Sea, by Seung-Wook Jang, can be seen in the session The Air and the Sea (+10). For this debate, IndieJúnior had the collaboration of PNA – Plano Nacional das Artes.
