Living Proof: A Climate Story

Emily Munro

This screening will be followed by a recorded filmmaker Q&A

Living Proof is a new touring film that explores our historic relationship to the causes of the climate crisis. It invites viewers to revisit the promises of the past and consider how they relate to our future on this planet.

"looks at the most treasured, most contested and most exploited parts of the country"

This feature-length documentary frames Scotland's history through the lens of the current debate and brings Scotland's evocative screen heritage to cinema audiences across the country. Featuring corporate voices, news reporters, protestors, and the general public, the footage spans the geography of Scotland and looks at the most treasured, most contested and most exploited parts of the country.

Directed by the National Library's Dr Emily Munro, Living Proof portrays a nation shaped by demands for energy and economic growth and asks audiences: what needs to change? Is climate change rooted in our history? Can we break free from a boom and bust mentality? What can we do differently to ensure a healthy and sustainable future for generations to come?

Living Proof is a partnership project between the National Library of Scotland and Film Hub Scotland.
