Our February ecoFLIX will focus on CLIMATE CHANGE & SKIING!
Join us to watch –
THE CURVE OF TIME:
Due to climate change, by 2050 ski seasons will be markedly shorter. Lower elevations will receive significantly less snowfall. Two veteran professional skiers contemplate the impact their love for adventure has on the very environment that sustains and fulfills them. As they peer into the future, they realize there is a more sustainable path ahead, but it won’t be easy.
Runtime: 23 minutes
GUILT TRIP – A CLIMATE CHANGE FILM WITH A SKIING PROBLEM:
The only thing greater than this group of skiers’ desire to claim a first ski descent on Greenland’s second highest peak is the size of their carbon footprint to get there. Loaded with guilt, they decide to bring along renowned glaciologist, Alun Hubbard, whose hypothesis, if proven, could rewrite popular projections of global sea-level rise. However, the entire expedition is put in question when they arrive in Greenland and discover their objective is beyond the range of all available aircraft.
Runtime: 37 minutes
Thank you to ski legend, Mike Douglas for helping to arrange these screenings.
Whistler’s environmental charity, AWARE in partnership with the Whistler Public Library launched EcoFlix in 2016. The movies screened, whether feature length or a mix of short films, will focus on a variety of environmental issues. Screenings will be followed by an audience discussion of the points raised, lessons learned, and opportunities for personal and community actions.
