As the world waits in hope for a new dawn on climate change, 2 DEGREES reveals the chaotic failure of the UN negotiations in Copenhagen. It becomes chillingly clear that we cannot wait for governments to lead the way. So if commitment to act won’t come from above, perhaps the voices and actions of communities will bring the revolution that is needed. 2 DEGREES takes us to the streets of Port Augusta, a small Australian town, and follows the passionate efforts to replace the coal fired power stations with solar thermal power.

If we don’t understand the lessons from Copenhagen, we are doomed to repeat them in 2015, when the world body meets once more in Paris to adopt a legally binding agreement. From the award‐winning producer of The Burning Season and The Man who Stole my Mother’s Face, 2 DEGREES explores climate change through the prism of climate justice. While An Inconvenient Truth alerted us to the problem of climate change, 2 DEGREES is the gripping and vital fight for a solution.

"We hang on the knife edge of crisis, and as this film powerfully demonstrates, there are a lot of folks mobilizing to try and stave off the worst - and to build something beautiful in its place. Please join them!" - Bill McKibben
