Alister Barry, director and producer of the award-winning ‘Hot Air’ documentary will be present at a screening on 10 November to discuss how lessons learned from twenty years of climate change politics can be used to create change here in New Zealand.
Alister Barry says finding the time and energy to express ourselves politically isn’t easy.
“When we do we want our efforts to be effective, to pull the most effective lever as efficiently as we can. We need to know who are the key decision makers, what they are sensitive to and what actions are a waste of time. Hot Air tells the story of what has been tried over the last twenty years and how effective it was. Most importantly it tells how parliament and political parties have reacted to pressure of one sort and another.
“Dealing with climate change must eventually happen at a national political level. Hot Air lays the ground work for what we need to do politically. We know the problem, now we need to act. After seeing the film, people say to me, ‘I had forgotten so much of this stuff, or didn’t know it at all. Now I have a much better idea about where we should be going.”
WHEN: Tuesday November 10, 7pm-9pm
