Although climate change is a widely accepted phenomenon, few people have given thought to what disappearing glaciers, changing weather patterns, and rising sea levels will mean for the future. Michael Nash’s award-winning documentary explores the troubling result of such changes, centering on the mass migration of human populations. With spectacular footage from across the globe, Climate Refugees sketches out the scenario of displacement and upheaval. Nash’s film is a fascinating and unnerving wake-up call.
