MUSIC MEETS SCIENCE. The musicians and local climate experts in the film 1.5 STAY ALIVE bring an urgent message from the Caribbean to the international community:Help us limit global warming to 1.5°C!The aim of international climate change policy is to limit global
warming to two degrees Celsius. But scientists believe that a
temperature rise of just 1.5 degrees could lead to irreversible damage
to ecosystems and terrestrial and marine areas.
The film ’1.5 Stay Alive’ by Spanish film-maker Lucian Segura takes a
closer look at this issue using the example of the Caribbean region. He
describes the far-reaching consequences such warming will have for
biodiversity, fish stocks, coastal protection and the survival of
Caribbean coral reefs. The documentary also shows how climate change
will impact the people who live on the islands and along the Caribbean
coastlines and whose living space and homeland is increasingly being
lost.Scientists and those directly affected are also given a chance to
share their views. The film highlights the characteristic features of
the Caribbean, from Haiti and Trinidad all the way to Florida and New
Orleans, and shows how performers of diverse musical styles are dealing
with the challenge of climate change.
The film uses a combination of various genres including factual
documentary, music video and nature film to convey the diversity and
beauty of the Caribbean as a natural environment and cultural space and
to galvanise action.The film captures a spirit of optimism and resilience by challenging
a host of preeminent Caribbean musicians to express their experiences
by composing and performing songs of climate change, and their visions
of how to confront it.1.5 STAY ALIVE is equally adapted to be screened at
climate rallies, in cinemas or in educational settings in almost any
part of the world.
