#UndiMsiaChats 61 with MESYM: “Disruption: Climate. Change.” film screening

#UndiMsiaChats is back on Malaysia Day, in partnership with MESYM, to show an exciting new film about climate change, “Disruption: Climate. Change.

The film premiered earlier this month, setting the stage for the People’s Climate March on September 21 and the UN Climate Summit taking place in New York City two days later. The film calls for a new strategy to address the climate crisis: a public movement and uprising that forces world leaders to replace rhetoric with action.

Disruption seeks to answer a fundamental question: When it comes to climate change, why do we do so little when we know so much? The movie lays bare the science, the broken political process, the industry special interests and the civic disengagement that have brought us to this crossroads.

Live music!

There will be live performances by Markiza & Peter Brown, Negarakus and more after the film screening. Feel free to bring food & drinks to share with everyone.

About Disruption

‘When it comes to climate change, why do we do so little when we know so much?’

Through a relentless investigation to find the answer, Disruption takes an unflinching look at the devastating consequences of our inaction.

“In the past, masses of people have taken the wheel of history and turned it,” says author Naomi Klein in the film. “We have a responsibility to rise to our historic moment.”

The title of the film, “Disruption,” refers to both the dangerous environmental tipping points after which the entire climate system could spiral out of control, as well as the need for a mass social movement to disrupt the status quo and business-as-usual approach which is inhibiting the bold actions necessary to protect the planet’s future.

The People’s Climate March will bring together upwards of 100,000 people in NYC to demand immediate action from the 190 heads of state in town for the UN Climate Summit. Over 700 organizations spanning labor, faith, environmental justice, youth, health, first responders, environment, have already endorsed the march and will be dispatching their members to attend.

This is the story of our unique moment in history. We are living through an age of tipping points and rapid social and planetary change. We’re the first generation to feel the impacts of climate disruption, and the last generation that can do something about it. The film enlarges the issue beyond climate impacts and makes a compelling call for bold action that is strong enough to tip the balance to build a clean energy future.
