Carnegie Mellon International Film Festival Presents: The Age of Consequences

Friday, April 7, 2017 - 7:00pm
CMOA Theater, Carnegie Museum of Art
Sponsored By: 
Carnegie Mellon International Film Festival

‘The Hurt Locker’ meets ‘An Inconvenient Truth’, THE AGE OF CONSEQUENCES investigates the impacts of climate change on increased resource scarcity, migration, and conflict through the lens of US national security and global stability. Through unflinching case-study analysis, distinguished admirals, generals and military veterans take us beyond the headlines of the conflict in Syria, the social unrest of the Arab Spring, the rise of radicalized groups like ISIS, and the European refugee crisis – and lay bare how climate change stressors interact with societal tensions, sparking conflict.

Believing that his commitment to help Tehran’s poor community will ease the pain he feels over the loss of his 5-year-old son, Jalal finds that he might be in over his head. In what becomes a distressing exhibition of the plights and realities of Iranian society, we see the struggles of those Jalal intends to help.
