Green Screens: The Great Adventure
With special guest Chris Gates, Senior Climate Change Policy Advisor, Office of the Environmental Commissioner of Ontario
Green Screens partners films from the National Film Board with experts and panellists from the Canadian Institute for Environmental Law and Policy.
In The Great Adventure, the head of the Arctic Mission, filmmaker Jean Lemire, leads the SEDNA IV on its five-month voyage from Montreal to Vancouver, taking the scientific expedition through the treacherous Northwest Passage. Against the backdrop of breathtaking scenery, the crew face exceptionally cold weather and perilous navigation.
The Great Adventure unveils the beauty of this region and makes us keenly aware that climate change is seriously jeopardizing a fragile ecosystem.
