11 Degrees

Directed by Anna Ewert

The documentary follows the development of a skiing season in a Scottish ski resort. It explores the effects the climate change has on the Scottish winters and consequently on the ski resort. Narrated by one of the lift operators, we are introduced to this old fashioned place with its slow pace of life, dominated by the rhythms of the lifts and the machines. Starting at the height of the winter season, the film depicts an idyllic scenery which suddenly takes a shift when the temperature rises to 11 Degrees over night. Due to less snowfall and more rain, skiing has become more difficult in Scotland. As such, the documentary focuses on visual metaphors which tell the story of the struggling resort and also explores the people’s passion and enthusiasm to keep skiing alive no matter how difficult the conditions are. The character’s love for skiing and his optimism are intertwined with the images of a changing world. Embedded in the transition of the scenery, the film slowly reveals the challenges and economical problems the communities are facing in these times. Trailer and screening times >>

When Jeb’s journey takes a personal twist, we see how our crazy-for-plastic world has finally caught up to us and what we can do about it. Today. Right now. BAG IT is a film that examines our society’s use and abuse of plastic. The film focuses on plastic as it relates to our society’s throwaway mentality, our culture of convenience, our over consumption of unnecessary, disposable products and packaging—things that we use one time and then, without another thought, throw them away. Where is AWAY?? Away is over flowing landfills, clogged rivers, islands of trash in our oceans, and even our very own toxic bodies. Jeb travels the globe on a fact-finding mission—not realizing that after his simple resolution, plastic will never look the same again! Trailer and screening times >>
