CLIMATE CHANGE IN CINEMA
LOOKING THROUGH THE LENS OF DWEEPA
Karishma Rao
LA 70
The article explores the phenomenon of Climate Change as is being showcased in the genre of films. While making a distinction between parallel and popular cinema, it acknowledges the former’s role in underlining environmental issues with deep understanding and sensitivity while taking examples from different films.
The visual medium can bear a significant influence forming worldviews, demonstrated by compelling narratives through historic photographs. Cinema too has the potential to provoke and sensitize audiences with awareness, empathy, even alarm. The Inconvenient Truth [2006] is considered to be a milestone documentary on Climate Change, whose impact continues to dominate conversations years after its release, in both small and big ways; it has inspired ordinary people to engage with environmental studies, politics, even activism. Cinema can have negative impacts too, like in the fictional Jaws [1975] that caused widespread panic about sharks, and is also associated with the sharp rise of shark hunting that followed its release.
