EAST COAST PREMIERE, JUSTICE MATTERS

Not Without Us

MARK DECENA
USA, 2016
90 minutes, Color
Official website

In Person: Director Mark Decena

Not Without Us immerses us in the moving, personal journeys of seven grassroots activists from around the world as they prepare and head to Paris to challenge the 21st session of the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP21) that took place in Paris last December. Building on the momentum of the 2014 People's Climate March in New York, the Paris mobilizations were slated to be civil societies' largest and most urgent show of force yet. The deal made there was acclaimed as a historic success, but the film examines the type of agreement that was adopted and the questions that still remain: Can the COP21 Agreement stop climate change? If it can't, is it up to us? Filmfest DC's first screening of Not Without Us coincides with Earth Day and also is the day when the Paris Agreements will be signed at the UN in New York City.—Various sources

In English and French with English subtitles
