The Movie: Thin Ice, and Forest & Bird Climate Roadshow Presentation. A Nature on Screen event by South Auckland Branch of Forest & Bird.

Nature lovers and movie goers are in for a treat with an award winning New Zealand climate documentary and a compelling presentation from the Forest & Bird national Climate Roadshow.

Who is defending our climate?
We hear from the Climate Roadshow how nature can help make communities resilient to climate change. Protecting nature and the other practical steps we can take to help achieve the Paris Agreement's goal of keeping global warming well below 2 degrees is the focus of this persuasive presentation.

“The balance of power in New Zealand is against action on climate change however the disruption it causes threatens our prosperity, our way of life, the wildlife and landscapes that make New Zealand unique. We want to ensure New Zealanders have all the facts and research to understand this major change in nature.” - Spokesperson for Forest & Bird.

Thin Ice, the award-winning movie:
It's not your typical global warming documentary. New Zealand Geologist Simon Lamb takes a look at what’s really happening with global warming by filming scientists at work in the Arctic, the Antarctic and around the world. Along the way, we learn the whys and hows of global warming basics.

Climate science has been under unprecedented attack, called lies and ‘junk science,’ its practitioners labeled extremists and alarmists. Professional geologist and videographer Simon Lamb decided to see if these charges were true, presenting his personal, almost pole-to-pole journey, and conclusions.

Viewers see an insider’s view of the astonishing range of human activity and scientific work needed to understand the world’s changing climate. It is an intimate portrait of a global community of researchers racing to understand our planet’s changing climate.

The film has screened by invitation at a number of film festivals, including the 12th Baikal Film Festival (September, winning Best Popular Science Film) and at the Princeton Environmental Film Festival (January 2014), where it won the Audience Favorite award). It was screened by invitation at the Blue Ocean Film Festival in Monaco in November 2015 and won Best Environmental Documentary in the 2016 Bigger Picture Film Awards.

Movie goers will also be treated to a range of related displays in the foyer at the end of the movie and presentation.

Coffee and tea are available plus chances to win a range of environmentally themed raffles.
