We Don’t Have Time and the Climate Crisis Film Festival have partnered to offer you a unique opportunity to discover eye opening films from a diverse set of creators illustrating the impact of climate change.
This broadcast will feature a selection of films from the Climate Crisis Film Festival programme, bringing you insightful stories from the frontlines of the climate crisis.

15:00 GMT — Introduction
Our host Catarina Rolfsdotter-Jansson presents the broadcast, and Isabella Martin, Co-founder and Relationship Director of Climate Crisis Hub, gives a short background to the movies.
15:05 GMT — After the ice
Glaciers reflect our past and reveal our future. Historical aerial photographs of Iceland’s glaciers can now be reconstructed in three dimensions and overlaid with current day images to shed light on the impacts of recent anthropogenic climate change. Four years in the making, the short film ‘After Ice’ brings imagery from the archives of the National Land Survey of Iceland together with intimate footage of six outlet glaciers in Southeast Iceland to tell the breathtaking story of a rapidly disappearing frozen world.
Director: Kieran Baxter (2021), UK (set in Iceland)
15:20 GMT — Under the Surface
The next film, ‘Under the Surface’, focuses on a group of environmentalists and storytellers who set sail off the south west coast of Cornwall to discover the challenges facing our marine environment. Through their experiences, we investigate the dangers of micro plastics in our oceans and reflect on what course of action we should take to change our shared future.
Director: Tom Sweetland (2021), UK
15:25 GMT — Dive Tierra Bomba Dive
Continuing with the theme of oceans, ‘Dive Tierra Bomba Dive,’ follows a 19-year-old girl in Colombia as she emerges as a leader in her community to save the reef that’s vital to the survival of the island she lives in. She learns to dive, studies Marine Biology, rallies the fishermen and young people to bring awareness to protecting their marine ecosystem. She inspires those around her with a vision of a more secure future for their island home.
Director: Joya Berrow + Lucy Jane (2020), UK (set in Colombia)
15:40 GMT — Matagi Mālohi: Strong Winds
Tuvalu, the fourth-smallest country in the world by area, is a delicate ribbon of land in the Pacific Ocean whose inhabitants’ lives have long been intertwined with the sea. However, climate models predict the island’s current children may be the last native Tuvaluans. Sea level rise will mean that this low-lying nation is among the first facing an imminent existential threat, risking to be swallowed by the sea. ‘Matagi Malohi’ is a short but striking film capturing the passion and commitment of Pacific activists working to change that fate. Their rally cry? “We are not drowning, we are fighting.”
Director: Forest Woodward, Canyon Woodward & Aidan Haley (2021), USA
15:45 GMT — Believing in a New World
Meet Neidinha and Txai Suruí, mother and daughter activists from the Paiter Suruí people of Rondonia, in the Amazon forest. Txai is the founder of the Indigenous Youth movement in the state and was one of the young women who signed the popular action that sues the government for climate inaction.
Director: Mboakara Uru-eu-wau-wau (2021), Brazil
15:50 GMT — Detroit Hives
Detroit Hives follows Tim Paule and Nicole Lindsey, a young couple from East Detroit, who are working hard to support dwindling bee populations through beekeeping and create opportunities for young Detroit natives to overcome adversity. It is estimated that Detroit has well over 90,000 empty housing lots to date. In an effort to address this issue, Tim and Nicole have been purchasing vacant lots and converting them into bee farms. Detroit Hives explores the importance of beekeeping in communities and rebuilding inner-city communities one hive at a time.
Director: Palmer Morse & Rachel Weinberg (2019), USA
16:15 GMT — We the Power
Imagine upending the traditional energy system and giving the power of clean electricity production back to your neighbors. We the Power follows friends, families and visionaries, as they break down legislative barriers, take power back from big energy companies, put it in the hands of locals, and share the benefits to strengthen their towns. The film chronicles four local cooperatives from deep in the Black Forest, to the streets of ancient Girona, to the urban rooftops of London, as they pave the way for a clean energy revolution and build healthier, financially-strong communities.
A film by Patagonia (2021), USA
16:50 GMT — Purple Mountains
In a search for a united path forward on climate policy through a shared love of the outdoors, iconic snowboarder and environmentalist Jeremy Jones takes us on a journey to engage climate deniers, consider the future of clean air, clean water and a healthy planet, and search for common ground in the mountains — one voter at a time.
Director: Josh Murphy (2020), USA
