Decolonizing Western climate activism starts by decolonizing cinema.



The destructive forces of climate change are inherently impartial. So why is it that we continue to see black, brown, and indigenous communities constantly being hit the hardest by climate disaster? This selection of films examines how in a colonial-settler capitalist society, land and resource exploitation goes hand in hand with erasure of indiginous culture. 

The effects of environmental racism can be seen across the various contexts of these films, spanning from the global south to the global north. How can short film provide an insight into the struggles being faced by these affected groups? What role does cinema have to play in decolonizing the climate movement?
