Another environmental flick at the Festival was Ondi Timoner’s Cool It, based on Bjorn Lomborg, the controversial author of “The Skeptical Environmentalist,” who takes on the issue of climate change, challenging the status quo, and pointing toward new science and technology that might hold the solutions for our future.
In Cool It, he enters the contentious debate over global warming, although not denying that climate change is occurring, he still urges activists to tackle a fresh perspective.
The film brings a heady sense of urgency to confronting a global crisis.
I watched Ondi Timoner’s We Live in Public and wrote about it here. She has a very interesting view and seems to be getting good attention for her films from the festival jury and crowds.
In Cool It she reaches the audience with strong visuals and powerful background story, which makes it easy for Lomborg’s personality to come through.
