Initially, I wanted to create a film for young people with climate anxieties, but I found myself probing the hopefulness of youth. If those in positions of power were young once, perhaps it would be poignant to watch a story of crumbling hope.
The film's final note rings somber and unsettling. How does the weight of this enormous global dilemma lie on the shoulders of our youngest generations? I wanted this feeling to stay with audiences long enough for a reimagining of climate justice to breed with space for imperfection and empathy.
