Part of the EIFF Youth Eco Weekender Season
After paleoclimatologist Jack Hall (Dennis Quaid) is largely ignored by U.N. officials when presenting his environmental concerns, his research proves true when an enormous "superstorm" develops, setting off catastrophic natural disasters throughout the world. Trying to get to his son, Sam (Jake Gyllenhaal), who is trapped in New York with his friend Laura (Emmy Rossum) and others, Jack and his crew must travel by foot from Philadelphia, braving the elements, to get to Sam before it's too late.
This captioned screening includes a BSL-interpreted extended introduction from the EIFF Young Critics and will be screening alongside short films from Film Access Scotland's Climate Challenge: 1.5 Degrees Films project.
