Documentary film is an important medium for representing climate change—a crisis that is often difficult to visualize. Rob Nixon (2011) speaks about the important role of media as a “representational” and “strategic” tool for addressing environmental crises. Film is particularly capable of this representational/strategic task of making visible disparities of environmental risks and of holding governments and corporations accountable. In collaboration with the organizers of the 2020 Climate Week at Penn, the Center for Media at Risk will host a Virtual Conversation with environmental documentary filmmaker and producer Deia Schlosberg. Moderated by Annenberg PhD Candidate Hanna E. Morris, Deia will discuss her projects and the challenges and capabilities of environmental documentary filmmaking as a tool for political change. Deia’s most recent film, The Story of Plastic, will be streamed during the Philadelphia Environmental Film Festival, and is the first feature documentary film from The Story of Stuff Project.
