Living Proof: A Climate Story (2021) explores Scotland’s complex relationship to the global climate crisis through film and music. In this new documentary from Scotland’s Moving Image Archive, curated footage evocatively shows how our environment has been shaped by the demand for energy, industry and growth, soundtracked by Scottish musicians past and present.
Curator and director Emily Munro frames Scotland’s post-war history through the lens of the current debate, inviting audiences on a journey to revisit the promises of the past and consider how they relate to our future on this planet. Was climate change inevitable? Can we break free from a boom-and-bust mentality? Are we able to adapt to ensure a healthy and sustainable future for generations to come?
Featuring contemporary music by Louise Connell, Brownbear, and Post Coal Prom Queen.
The film’s director will be available to answer questions on the night.
