Samuel in the Clouds
First screened in October 2016
Director: Pieter Van Eecke. Documentary about a ski-lift operator atop Bolivia's highest mountain, watching his profession and the ecosystem of the mountain irrevocably change. Twitter Capsule:
Mutedly scary climate-change chronicle, as an aging Bolivian ski-lift operator sees the sun bake his slope.
There are so many good climate-change documentaries, but they rarely take such a personal, specific, inductive route toward big ideas.
