about this title on
Former diplomat Yeb Saño and the climate pilgrims take a journey through Europe, crossing three countries, and arrive in Paris for the international climate talks. The multi-faith pilgrimage embodies a spirit of diversity and unity, and along the way they are helped by communities who share their vision of peace. In a tense political environment, following the November attacks in Paris, the pilgrims unite with others to express their frustrations at weak government action, and dare to hope for a brighter future.
The strongest typhoon ever recorded in human history hits the Philippines in 2013 creating a national catastrophe. Meanwhile, the world's governments are gathered in Warsaw for the UN climate conference, and Yeb Saño delivers his powerful and emotional speech, calling for an end to climate madness. Two years later Yeb leaves his position as chief climate negotiator for the Philippines, and begins his work of linking people across the globe by participating in a multi-faith pilgrimage. This film follows Yeb and his fellow climate pilgrims on their journey on foot through Europe, as they connect with local people, and we see how walking can be a peaceful form of protest. The pilgrimage ends in Paris, where the UN climate conference is taking place. The pilgrims stay with locals and continue their work of uniting with others, and calling for a better future. The film is a meditative reflection on the power of human connection, and through the film we witness how communities and people of faith are responding to this crisis.
A climate pilgrimage from Rome to Paris. A meditative reflection on the transformative power of human connection.
