Living Proof: A Climate Story

Living Proof: A Climate Story

Emily Munro | Scotland | 2021 | 96m | N/C 8+

A stunning new archive documentary that looks for the roots of the climate crisis in Scotland's post-war history.


In the year that Scotland hosts the UN's climate change conference (COP26), Living Proof explores the country's complex relationship to the global climate crisis through film and music. In this new feature-length documentary from Scotland's Moving Image Archive, curated footage evocatively shows how our environment has been shaped by the demand for energy, industry, and growth, soundtracked by Scottish musicians past and present.

Curator and director Emily Munro frames Scotland's post-war history through the lens of the current debate, inviting audiences on a journey to revisit the promises of the past and consider how they relate to our future on this planet. Was climate change inevitable? Can we break free from a boom-and-bust mentality? Are we able to adapt to ensure a healthy and sustainable future for generations to come?
