Catch Documentary Film Maker Rakesh Rao at the SFF – Global Leaders’ Roundtable by Ecosystm: Global Solutions to Climate Change in Light of the Pandemic.

THE CLIMATE CHALLENGE We are on the brink of Climate Crisis. There are empirical evidences of changing climate across the planet. The worst affected regions that are facing the brunt of climate change are the Cryospheric regions of the world (Arctic, Antarctic and the Himalayas) and also the Oceans. Concerns on climate change and its impact on land, environment and mankind has been growing lately. Scientists today are using the latest technology and braving some of the harshest conditions on this planet only to investigate these effects of changing climate. Conducting any scientific research activities in some of these regions are extremely difficult due to its harsh climatic conditions, undulating and inaccessible terrain, and the remoteness of field sites. The film takes you on a journey documenting these scientists conducting research in the Arctic, Himalayas and the Southern Ocean and them experiencing some life threatening situations, in order to get the scientific data.
