Listening to Our Neighbours: Exploring the Changing Climate in Antigonish, NS is a new film directed by local filmmaker Corinne Dunphy and produced by Antigonish Climate Resilience.
It is a story about Antigonish — our people, land, water and livelihoods. It was filmed completely in Antigonish and features our neighbours and friends, at home and on the job. It explores what people are doing locally to prepare for climate change, to deal with its consequences, and to help slow it down.
This film project brought together a diverse collection of individuals and groups, working collectively, celebrating our community, while simultaneously showing our concern for what is happening because of climate change and offering choices for individual and collective action. Climate change is happening, so let’s explore together what to do to ensure Antigonish remains the vibrant community we call home.
Antigonish Climate Resilience is an informal group of citizens who have been meeting since the fall of 2014 with the goal of increasing public engagement and action on climate change issues.
Everyone is invited to join Antigonish Climate Resilience for the public premiere of “Listening to Our Neighbours, Exploring the Changing Climate in Antigonish NS.” on September 24th at 7pm in the Community Room at The People’s Place: Antigonish Town and County Library.
This film was made possible through funding from the Municipality of the County of Antigonish; Nova Scotia Department of Environment; Central Home Improvement; The Townhouse Brewpub and Eatery; Antigonish International Film Festival; Sustainable Antigonish; The Sisters of St. Martha; and Public Health Services – Nova Scotia Health Authority.
