Reflections from educators...
"I saw the world premiere of Beyond Crisis and knew immediately that it would be the perfect film to use in the classroom. I was right: just like me, the students appreciated the film’s balance between telling it like it is (explaining the climate crisis and how we got here) alongside showing how positive change is already underway — and coming primarily from communities standing up for their futures. Beyond Crisis encourages us to get informed and become a part of the solution. It’s now my go-to climate change film."
- Dr. Angela Carter, University of Waterloo
“I used Beyond Crisis in an introductory course on sustainability with 150 students. Following the film we discussed some of the questions provided by the producer. The discussion was certainly one of the most active I had in this course and it was clear that the students were moved and inspired by the film. The film gave them hope and a sense of empowerment!"
- Dr. Manuel Riemer, Wilfrid Laurier University
Reflections from the community...
"Hi Kai! Just wanted to say how grateful I am of you sharing your art and passion with us. The takeaways from the experience are more valuable than I can express. Being able to look at a complex scenario and create momentum through positive energy is a gift! I know there will be opportunities for us to create shared value together in the future."
- Ian Cook, President and Chair, MiltonGreen Environmental Association
"I see this as a great documentary to show to groups - as an overview but also as a stimulus for discussion. The breakdown into various considerations is perfect for topics of discussion. Well done!"
- Katie Fullerton, ClimateFast Scarborough Screening
"You guys have created an awesome film about the most important issue facing our planet. You've put in an incredible effort. Thanks so much for your time, creativity and dedication. May this be a catalyst for the coming movement of change."
- Scott Brubaker-Zehr, Rockway Mennonite Church
"Beyond Crisis was an official selection at the 2018 Taos Environmental Film Festival. The audience appreciated the inspirational and historical perspective which showed how strong leaders, such as Winston Churchill, Dr. Martin Luther King, Gandhi and Nelson Mandela, could overcome huge obstacles and and inspire their nation's citizens to support truth, justice and a better future for all.
In 2018, we are at a similar crossroads and this film gives us hope that together we can solve the climate crisis if we work together and elect strong leaders who advocate for green technology and the preservation of our biodiversity."
- Jean Stevens, Director, Taos Environmental Film Festival
"What a great way to reflect and motivate to act. Thank you for all your work!"
