Climate Changers (E)

Tuesday, 3 October, 2023 @ 7:00 PM 9:00 PM

Following its world premiere at the 2023 Sydney Film Festival, where it was shortlisted for the Best Australian Documentary Award and the Sustainable Future Award, the vital documentary Climate Changers will be coming to cinemas nationally.

Directed by Johan Gabrielsson, and written and produced by Mark Forstmann, Climate Changers follows acclaimed scientist Tim Flannery as he searches for the missing ingredient in our fight against climate change – leadership. Where are the climate leaders who will drive change? How might they succeed where others have failed? Tim Flannery poses these questions as he meets global leaders from the corridors of power and frontlines of climate change. Climate Changers delves into what frustrates Tim, what motivates him, and explores where Tim believes the solutions lie to humanity’s greatest challenge. 

Throughout the film, Tim discusses climate leadership with an impressive group of leaders, providing their thoughts, solutions and models for potential pathways through this perilous landscape. Interviewees include: 45th Vice President of the United States, Al Gore; engineer, renewable electricity advocate and founder of Rewiring Australia, Dr. Saul Griffith; former Prime Minister of Australia, Malcolm Turnbull; Fijian international human rights lawyer and activist, Kavita Naidu; Dharawal and Yuin custodian, and community leader Paul Knight; co-founder and president of Bushfire Survivors for Climate Action, Jo Dodds; climate councillor and former head of BP Australasia, Greg Bourne; tribal chief of East Kwaio in the Solomon Islands, community leader and conservationist, Chief Esau Kekeubata; West Papuan activist and human rights lawyer, Frederika Korain; and Tishiko King, a Kulkalaig woman from Masig (Yorke Island), who as a First Nations Advisor, attended the 2021 UN Climate Change Conference (COP26) in Glasgow. 

Director Johan Gabrielsson comments “I wanted to make a film that asks the most pressing question in a changing global climate: do we have the leadership to take us to a greener future? As I followed Tim from his home on the Hawkesbury River, to the world’s largest global climate summit, I witnessed his amazing knowledge and empathy on full display. I hope Climate Changers offers inspiration and impetus to a greener tomorrow.” 

Tim Flannery adds “For a long time, there has been a gap in climate leadership. I wanted to dig deeper, work out why we are so lacking in climate leaders, and talk about how we can tackle this challenge. I met with some incredible minds in the making of this film, people who are out there doing incredible work. I hope some of the ideas explored can empower policy-makers and the broader population to instigate the changes we so desperately need.”
