There is one issue that unites us all no matter what part of the world you live in: climate change.
But what is climate change? What is being done about it? And what can you do to help? In “Tipping Point”, 13-year-old filmmaker Dylan D'Haeze explores the ways in which humans have impacted the planet from the greenhouse effect causing ocean acidification to how industrial farming creates more methane. The film also goes over recent, drastic fluctuations in weather as well what is being neglected when those in charge turn a blind eye in order to increase profits for corporations.
It’s a multi-faceted look at the issues from a kid’s perspective! Join us on this epic journey through an issue that is of grave importance to your generation and future generations.
Local Hero Award, Friday Harbor Film Festival
-School Library Journal
"RECOMMENDED. A hard-hitting video for middle school students that is current and clear in its message; climate change is not something we can choose to ignore or deny...Tipping Point does a great job raising awareness and explaining things simply so everyone can take away the same messages."
- Science Books and Films
"What is interesting about this film like its predecessor, Plastic is Forever, is that it showcases many young people who are genuinely concerned and doing something on both a small and large scale to reduce the negative impacts of climate change on our planet."
