WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Heralded as "brilliant" and "important" in performances in French and English in Paris during COP21, Extreme Whether, in the new genre of cli-fi (climate fiction), is a fierce exposé of politically motivated censorship and a family divided by money, power, and science. It is, equally, a love story: of people for nature, a girl for a deformed frog, two embattled climate scientists for truth and one another, and an old man, Uncle, for the land in his care. Inspired by crusading climate scientist, James Hansen, and arctic ice scientist Jennifer Francis, and praised by both.
