The Loud Spring
How could a society look that is able to mitigate climate change? And how can we build it?
The film starts with the question why the CO2 emissions did not decrease since the beginning of UN climate conferences: why have we lost 30 years?
It discusses the problems of “green capitalism”: the need for economic growth inherent to capitalist economies, and the dependence of nation states from economic success on the world market. In this context, we assess the potential of renewable energies and other technological fixes, given the problems of resource depletion.
We ask scientists to describe the consequences of unmitigated climate change: at what point are we now? How do things have to change?
In the second part we depict what in the global climate movement is called “System Change”. How would a society capable of dealing with the problem of climate change more responsibly look?
The Loud Spring shall fuel a strategical debate inside the climate movement.
It will have it's theatrical release in the beginning of 2022.
The funding for the film is not completed yet. Please help us with the rest by directly donating to our non-profit-association:

Since the beginning of the UN Conferences On Climate in 1992, yearly CO2 emissions have risen by 60%. In spite of protests and warnings. Why?
In February 2021 we published this trailer to raising funding for the production.
In September 2020 we filmed at the Ende Gelände direct action climate camp in Rhineland.
"We don't accept that all these fossil fuels are private property of companies who burn them and destroy the planet for the rest of humanity" says activist Sina Reisch.
One of the scientists that we interviewed is Simon Pirani. He wrote "Burning Up - A History Of Fossil Fuel Consumption" (2019).
We asked him why we don't stop the production of goods that we don't need.
His answer: "Because we're not in charge!"
In July 2021, we went to Lausanne to interview Julia Steinberger, She is a professor for Social Ecology & Ecological Economics.
In her view, politicians don't really know what is at stake.
Engineer Philippe Bihouix, author of "L'âge des low tech", explains why and at what scale the current economic system is not sustainable.
