Jared P. Scott’s “The Age of Consequences” examines the impacts of climate change on increased resource scarcity, migration and conflict through the lens of national security and global stability. Described as “The Hurt Locker” meets “An Inconvenient Truth,” the film employs admirals, generals and veterans to take us beyond the headlines of some of the most important events of the last few years — the conflict in Syria, the social unrest of the Arab Spring, the rise of radicalized groups like ISIS and more — and how climate change stressors interact with them. Watch an exclusive trailer for the film below.
Scott has previously directed three documentaries: “Do the Math,” about the fight against the fossil fuel industry, “Disruption,” about the inaction regarding climate change and “Requiem for the American Dream,” a conversation with Noam Chomsky about income inequality in the United States. He is also a co-founder of PF Pictures, a production company that produces documentaries about crucial issues facing the planet.
“The Age of Consequences” will screen on Monday, November 14 at 9:30pm at the IFC Center in New York City as a part of DOC NYC. It will be theatrically released in Canada on November 11 and in the United States at the end of January 2017.
