Through the lens of national security and global stability, a look at the impacts of climate change on increased resource scarcity and migration. As part of a case-study analysis, admirals, generals and military veterans take viewers beyond the headlines of the conflict in Syria, the social unrest of the Arab Spring, the rise of groups like ISIS, and the European refugee crisis — and lay bare how climate change stressors interact with societal tensions, sparking conflict.
“Lost in Light,” directed by Sriram Murali. Short film.
LOST IN LIGHT is a short film on how light pollution affects the view of the night skies. Shot mostly in California, the movie shows how the view gets progressively better as you move away from the lights. The night skies remind us of our place in this Universe. The Universe gives us identity, makes us feel a connection. But thanks to light pollution, most people lack this connection. Millions of children will never see a sky full of stars. We owe to our future generations to preserve this natural beauty.
