The Undercurrent. 2019. USA. Directed by Rory Pilgrim. DCP. 50 min.
Multidisciplinary artist Rory Pilgrim collaborated with a group of 10 young climate activists in Boise, Idaho, to create an intimate portrait of a generation often burdened with the expectation that they will save us all from ourselves. With tenderness and vulnerability, the activists share their struggles, highlighting how mental health, homelessness, grief, and gender inequality intersect with the climate crisis. With ethereal cinematography and music by Declan Rowe John, The Undercurrent shows us that the way forward is together, with the shared belief that we can exist in the future.
