On Sunday night, a new documentary film highlighting the intertwined story of the climate crisis and the growing social movement which has grown in response to it was released online for national screenings that took place in people's home and public meeting spaces.
At just under an hour long, the film--titled 'Disruption'--was produced with a stated goal to "galvanize a new wave of climate action and climate leadership" across the globe and comes just weeks before the 'People's Climate March' being organized for New York City that will take place on Sunday, September 21.
As Jamie Henn, a co-founder of 350.org--which is leading the organizing effort for the march and also produced the film--said to his organization's members in an email:
Here's the most exciting part of this story: it's not finished yet. The next act will be written in the streets on September 21st, when the People's Climate March takes over New York (and cities across the globe).
This is the history we'll tell the next generation -- about the end of fossil fuels, about how the world was in crisis, about how we started to turn it around together.
