An ethnographic film work in progress dedicated to enhancing public participation in both the global social movements for climate action and the United Nations climate negotiations.

For the last four years, Richard Widick—Sociologist and Visiting Scholar at the Orfalea Center for Global & International Studies at UCSB—has been both inside the United Nations climate talks and out in the streets protesting with the social movements... meeting and filming interviews with the activists, scholars, politicians and business-folk who are contesting the direction of emergent global climate governance and shaping the new treaty.  The intent of the film project is to raise critical questions and produce critical reflection on the nature of the treaty process and the substance of the agreement it is presently crafting.  Is it charting a path toward global climate justice?  Or global climate apartheid?

Post-screening discussion with filmmaker sociologist Richard Widick & Executive Producer John Foran. Reception in the Michael Douglas Lobby to follow.

Cosponsored by The Carsey-Wolf Center; UCSB Critical Issues in America -- "Climate Futures: This Changes Everything"; Environmental Humanities Initiative; UCSB Global Climate and Environmental Justice Project of the Orfalea Center; UCSB System Change Not Climate Change; and UCSB Campus Greens.
