The CLIMATE CRISIS FILM FESTIVAL is proud to present THE HUMAN ELEMENT (Testa & Balog, 2018). The stunning visual work of renowned National Geographic photographer, James Balog, is framed through the four ancient elements: earth, air, fire and water. People, Balog suggests, are the fifth element — a force of nature, too. People are driving climate change and, in turn, our lives are being altered by it.

THE HUMAN ELEMENT is part of the WE ARE ALL CONNECTED double bill, pairing two visually arresting films that look at how mankind and nature are inextricably linked.

You can buy tickets for the individual film or discounted tickets for the double bill. www.ticketsource.co.uk/deptfordcinema/t-xxljvm

***THE FILM:***

In THE HUMAN ELEMENT, photographer James Balog (the lens behind CHASING ICE) shows viewers why we, as a society, can no longer turn a blind eye to the drastically changing world around us.

Rather than featuring primarily on scientists, THE HUMAN ELEMENT focuses instead on relatable everyday people being affected by the changing planet: firefighters, fishermen, coal miners. Telling a powerful story that puts the focus on climate change where it should be: not as a political or environmental issue, but a human one.

No element can exist in isolation — when one is imbalanced, it causes a chain reaction. As we change the elements, the elements change us.
