The Loud Spring


Everything Must Change

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 decline 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?

This film aims to fuel a strategical debate inside the climate movement.
It will have it's theatrical release in the beginning of 2022.

Since the beginning of the UN Conferences On Climate in 1992, yearly CO2 emissions have risen by 60%. In spite of raised voices, 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 2014 engineer Philipp Bihouix published "The Age Of Low Tech" where he describes how France could become a low-tech nation in order to become more sustainable.

We asked him why and at what scale the current economic system isn't sustaibable.
