This film is the first part of the planned three-part documentary series Love & Rage. For more than 30 years climate issues were supposedly at the forefront of our attention. We published data, set up panels, but nothing fundamental happened. Last year, various movements and activists changed the climate game by making their emotions felt and heard. And suddenly, things were set into motion. The film Grief therefore does not deal with climate change through data and degrees Celsius, but through the emotions provoked by the prospect of climate collapse. It focuses on women – often mothers of small children – because it is they who perceive the threat of climate change in the most immediate and pressing way.
