Directed by Fredric Golding and produced by Mike Tollin, “Meltdown” is a new climate-focused documentary that features the beautiful, yet tragic landscapes of Greenland.
The film is set in Ilulissat, Greenland where Lynn Davis, an acclaimed photographer who has spent 30 years photographing Greenland’s icebergs, joins Yale Climate Expert, Tony Leiserowitz, to discuss rapid ice melt and its effects on both the local and global populations. They describe Greenland as a place of beauty, loss, and grief. Leiserowitz faces this complex reality by asking the question, “How do you experience beauty at the same time that you have a sense of tragedy?”
Although the film addresses dire circumstances and the full gravity of the climate crisis, it also provides a sense of hope. At the end of the trailer, the words It’s not too late show up beneath the title, reminding the audience that our grief for what has been lost should spur us into action to preserve what hasn’t.
