ENVIRONMENTAL ENCOUNTERS

We focus on the environment in this collection as we take a look at films that explore our surroundings and people's relationships to them. We follow 82-year-old glaciologist Claude Lorius to the icescapes of Antartica as he sounds the alarm for the global warming crisis in 'Ice and the Sky'. The Jacques Cousteau biopic 'The Odyssey' tells the story of one man's passion for the natural world before our impact on it became fully apparent. Its extraordinarily beautiful marine sequences are matched by the rapture of the images in Amazonian drama 'Embrace of the Serpent' and the austere look of the Palme d'Or winner 'Winter Sleep', which transforms the Anatolian countryside into a painterly series of landscapes. Our engagement with the wild is the subject of two celebrated documentaries (Werner Herzog's 'Grizzly Man' and Wim Wenders' 'The Salt of the Earth'), and also a hilarious comedy ('Hunt for the Wilderpeople').
