A new documentary is out this week from Abramorama and director Charles Ferguson speaks on what is truly happening with the climate change and giving us all a TIME TO CHOOSE.
Narrated by Oscar Isaac, the film also includes interviews with Unilever CEO Paul Polman, Kumni Naidoo who is the director of Greenpeace International, Nobel Prize winner Steven Chu, Dr. Jane Goodall and Nobel Prize winner Mohammed Yunus.
The film travels to five continents discussing the use of fossil fuels, industrialized agriculture and more of what is changing our planet. From the Appalachians where coal-poisoned waters are hurting citizens to the coat pits of China, the film asks us too truly listen to those who are affected by it all.
Jennifer Hall-Massey lives in West Virginia where people died from brain tumors and she wanted to know why. Wu Gang from China is bringing more wind turbines to help produce what the world need cleanly. There is Blairo Maggi from Brazil, owner of the world largest soybean producing company who changed his own mind about the way he treats the world.
These are only a few of the people believing that change is possible and TIME TO CHOOSE gives us a chance to learn about many more.
TUBS OF POPCORN: I give a TIME TO CHOOSE four tubs of popcorn out of five. Ferguson brings the issue up front and personal by bringing to speak those who are not only affected, but those who see the constant result of what is being done to the planet.
In making TIME TO CHOOSE he says, “I made the film because climate change is the most important issue facing humanity and we urgently need broader understanding of how enormously we would all benefit from addressing it.
Ferguson continues with hope saying, “Fortunately it is a challenge that we hold in common, and the film shows that across the globe, in myriad ways, people are coming together to find and implement solutions. We’re not too late, and our hope is that TIME TO CHOOSE will help audiences see both the tragedy that is unfolding and the remarkable and innovative ways in which humanity is finding a better way forward”.
This is not the first documentary on serious issues that Ferguson has tackled. He also produced NO END IN SIGHT, the Oscar-nominated piece about the conflict in Iraq. In 2010, he won an Oscar for his documentary on the financial crisis with INSIDE JOB.
