The Age of Consequences Screening

April 27 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

The Ray C. Anderson Foundation

Join Southface for a screening of The Age of Consequences, followed by a facilitated panel discussion Thursday, April 27, 5:30-7:30 pm at Midtown Art Cinema. Members of Truman Project's Atlanta Chapter will also be present to participate in this event.

The Hurt Locker meets An Inconvenient Truth, THE AGE OF CONSEQUENCES investigates the impacts of climate change on increased resource scarcity, migration and conflict through the lens of US national security and global stability. Through unflinching case-study analysis, distinguished admirals, generals and military veterans take us beyond the headlines of the conflict in Syria, the social unrest of the Arab Spring, the rise of radicalized groups like ISIS and the European refugee crisis—and lay bare how climate change stressors interact with societal tensions, sparking conflict. Whether a long-term vulnerability or sudden shock, the film unpacks how water and food shortages, drought, extreme weather and sea-level rise function as ‘accelerants of instability’ and ‘catalysts for conflict’ in volatile regions of the world.

The film’s unnerving assessment is by no means a reason for fatalism—but instead a call to action to rethink how we use and produce energy.
