How do you feel about climate change? What can you do? What can't you do?
The Weather Project documentary is about community, action, and collaboration against the threat of climate change. The film follows the development and the coming to life of a galvanizing theatre movement called The Weather Project in upstate New York.
These questions are growing in society and The Weather Project tells a story that is part action, part art, part science and all too human. It's the story of creating an art piece, of a community, of a global problem, and bringing it to a wider audience.
The Weather Project, the theatre piece, was conceived by North American Cultural Laboratory (NACL) led by Artistic Director Tannis Kowalchuk. Both theatre and science expo, it brought together a community (Highland Lake, NY) by touching a nerve we all feel. With the help of NASA experts, the resulting educational workshops and production - a colorful, musical event dealing with the weather, climate change, and the impact of human activities on the earth - debuted on August 9th, 2014.
DecadesOut has been following NACL and the project since February 2014 and is thrilled to have this film nearly completed.
