HOT AIR Press Release.
HOT AIR on Maori TV tonight.
HOT AIR, the politics of climate change in New Zealand screens at 8.30 tonight on Maori TV.
Last week the Listener gave this feature documentary four stars. Reviewers have described it as “..compelling..” and “..riveting..”.
Filmmakers Alister Barry and Abi King-Jones last worked together on the film of Nicky Hager’s book, The Hollow Men. Their lastest film was a finalist in the NZ Film Awards just a few weeks ago.
The film tracks the politics of climate change in New Zealand. Despite many attempts to minimise New Zealand greenhouse activity in 20 years, emissions have actually increased by 25%. So what went wrong? Barry and King-Jones speak with all the major players from the period, and present a wealth of telling footage from the archives. As the world anticipates next year's climate conference in Paris, can we expect our politicians to implement real change, or just more hot air?
Find out tonight on Maori Television at 8.30.
