Time to Choose

Charles Ferguson/2015/94 min/Climate Change

FILM DESCRIPTION: Oscar-winning documentary director Charles Ferguson captures the urgency and innovation of this critical moment in his new film, Time to Choose, which takes audiences on a journey from the threats we face to the remarkable stories of people changing our world for the better.

Its scope is truly global, with footage and interviews from five continents. The film’s investigation of the true costs of fossil fuels and industrialized agriculture takes audiences inside the drivers of these global phenomena. Audiences meet Appalachian residents suffering from coal-poisoned waters, descend into the dangerous coal pits of China, see the red night skies of Nigeria’s oil and gas lands, and hear from courageous officials fighting corruption and deforestation in Indonesia. Through these portraits and more, Ferguson shows the toll the status quo is taking on human lives and the world around us.
