Q&A with the Directors 


Way to Go!  | New York Premiere — DOC SHORT TRAILER

Katherine Roselli | United States | 2019 | 9:10 mins        

"If you’ve ever hiked in the woods, you probably know the rule, 

 “Leave No Trace.” “Way to Go!” tells the story of Mt. Shasta’s sun-powered composting toilet and the local volunteers who maintain it, keeping poop invisible and sweet at 7,900 feet. Shot on location, “Way to Go” brings whimsy to an environmental threat we don’t like to think about: human waste."


Climate Emergency: Feedback Loops | New York Premiere — DOC SHORT

Susan Gray | United States | 2021 | 13:09 mins 

Subtitled in 23 languages and narrated by Richard Gere, Climate Emergency: Feedback Loops is a series of five short films, featuring twelve leading climate scientists, that explores how human-caused emissions are triggering nature’s own warming loops. We submit the five shorts to your festival (total 57:44) for screening of any or all of the films. The film series had its official launch with the Dalai Lama, Greta Thunberg and world-renowned scientists in a webcast, “The Dalai Lama with Greta Thunberg and Leading Scientists: A Conversation on the Crisis of Climate Feedback Loops.” 


Common Thread | New York Premiere — DOC SHORT TRAILER

Frank Fazzio | United States | 2022 | 14:15 mins              

Climate crisis and Global Warming is a mental health crises, and our children are among the most vulnerable. For families, climate-driven extreme weather like intense heat days, wildfires, and hurricanes — like Hurricane Ian — are taking a toll on our mental health. It’s time for Congress to act. A 2021 Lancet survey of over 10,000 young people found that 75% of youth around the world think the future is frightening, and 45% reported that climate distress has a negative impact on their daily lives.


Gen Z Mental Health: Climate Stories | New Yrok Premiere — DOC SHORT TRAILER

Tehya Jennett | United States | 2022 | 8:30 mins             

"In this short documentary, Gen Z'ers from around the globe talk about how climate change affects their mental health, life choices, & their visions for the future. The Gen Z'ers featured in this documentary are climate ambassadors in their community, fighting against the government for their rights and finding joy through community action.

They deal with the duality of feeling young and sometimes powerless, whilst being empowered by community action and the chance for real change. These young people share about their tools for emotional resilience in the face of climate change and the power of stories to deal with climate anxiety."

A personal dive into the world’s most impersonal substance: plastics. Amid the lockdown, a bereaved mother unfolds a surprising journey within and across oceans to understand the contemporary landscape of single-use synthetics. From the noble intentions behind its invention to scales of havoc it has wrought, this experimental documentary brings together art, history, science, and the everyday. Playfully crafted with hand-drawn illustrations and poetic interludes, this evocative “pause between deep time and no time” will change how you think about this ordinary “thing without thingness.”
