Summer Films on Corn, Coal, Lights and Flights

It’s a summer movie special as Climate One talks to the directors/producers of four recent documentaries that bring human drama to the climate story: Hillbilly, which explores the myths and realities of life in the Appalachian coalfields; My Country No More, the story of one rural community divided by the North Dakota oil boom; Saving the Dark, which focuses on the battle of dark-sky enthusiasts to fight light pollution; and Point of No Return, in which two pilots risk their lives flying around the world in a solar-powered plane that is as delicate as a t-shirt. Guests: Rita Baghdadi, Co-Director, My Country No More Noel Dockstader, Co-Director, Point of No Return Jeremiah Hammerling, Co-Directo, My Country No More Quinn Kanaly, Co-Director, Point of No Return Sriram Murali, Director/Producer, Saving the Dark Sally Rubin, Co-Director, Hillbilly Portions of this program were recorded at The Commonwealth Club in San Francisco.
