CZ in the Classroom

Personal choices. Agricultural impacts. Infrastructure. Technology. Climate change has many dimensions, and should be part of the curriculum at multiple ages and from multiple perspectives. With its personal perspective, light touch, and grounding in the details of everyday life, the film is a great way to open the discussions. Contact us if you would like to brainstorm about COMFORT ZONE could be used in your class, or if you would like to have a filmmaker attend a screening.

CZ: The Story of the Story

“People from the beginning tried to dissuade us from being co-directors,” Donnelly says. “Most films have one vision, but this is three visions woven together. Now that it’s done I think those different viewpoints will help more people connect to what we’re saying, but it did make it more difficult to complete the process.” A movie reviewer  interviews the filmmakers and explores the story of how the film came to be made.
