Editorial Reviews

From the producers of An Inconvenient Truth; CLIMATE OF CHANGE is a rich and inspiring documentary that takes us around the world to find the ordinary people taking action in the fight to save our environment. With beautiful narration written by British poet Simon Armitage and mellifluously voiced by Tilda Swinton (Chronicles of Narnia; Adaptation); the film seamlessly explores how teenagers in India; villagers in Papua New Guinea and Africa; self-described hillbillies in Appalachia and a PR expert in London are harnessing their global thinking to act locally within their respective communities. In what Variety calls half eco-docu; half artsocial-action cinema with a twist; director Brian Hill and his cinematographers create a real sense of ambience in each of the countries and communities they visit. Conversations with West Virginians are punctuated by footage of mountaintops surrounding their homes being dynamited; Papua New Guineans talk among the giant trees being decimated by commercial logging and a visit to the Global Seed Vault built in the Norwegian permafrost in Svalbard; Norway is nothing short of ethereal.

By K. Harris HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWER on February 20, 2011
Format: DVD
Sometimes it is difficult to separate the message from the movie. Brian Hill's new eco-documentary "Climate of Change" certainly comes from a worthwhile place and great intentions--and, in truth, that's probably enough. Set around the world, the film presents fascinating individual stories in an effort to raise awareness of global environmental issues. The hook seems to be that even individuals can make a difference--and that's a great concept, a universal truth, and hopefully something we can all embrace! However, the narrative theme sometimes goes a bit off course and the film approaches an "everything but the kitchen sink" type of storytelling that spreads itself a little too thin. When the film loses track of its individual stories, it is still insightful and informative. But the scatter shot approach tends to lessen the potential impact and, as a call to arms, the film falls a little short in creating the dramatic imperative of some higher profile environmental documentaries. "Climate of Change" introduces so many different issues, in fact, a friend that screened the film with me actually said "It makes it seem so futile." This is, undoubtedly, the opposite of the affect the film makers wanted to create!

The documentary, however, is certainly beautifully shot. Actress Tilda Swinton provides a poetic narration (courtesy of Simon Armitage), that links the disparate scenes together. Haunting and evocative, the voice-over is one of the strongest elements in the film.

A charming film. Not as hard hitting as some of the others like The Cove or If a Tree Falls.
