Writer and filmmaker Stephen Most will speak about representing climate change via stories for the screen that enlarge the viewer's understanding. He will discuss how films aid campaigns that change the climate of opinion. Most will speak about visual storytelling as an effective form of public education on crucial subjects that mass media tend to ignore, misrepresent or present without adequate context. Addressing the challenges nonfiction filmmakers face in showing arts’ complexities and unprecedented realities, Most will read passages from his book, Stories Make the World: Reflections on Storytelling and the Art of the Documentary.
