Beyond Climate represents the most recent segment in Ian Mauro’s trilogy of climate change films across Canada, which also includes Qapirangajuq: Inuit Knowledge and Climate Change (Co-Directed with acclaimed Inuk filmmaker Zacharias Kunuk) and Climate Change in Atlantic Canada.
For each of these projects, Mauro and his colleagues listened to the stories, wisdom and observations of people across the landscape. The films show that all Canadians are being impacted by but also finding solutions to climate change.
