Albatross: Weapon of Choice Marjan Minnesma

Albatross

Language: Engels

Exclusively for Movies that Matter, Marjan Minnesma has selected the film Albatross. Why has this film in particular made such on impression on her and why is it important for everyone to see it? We ask her these questions before the screening. Afterwards, director Chris Jordan will join to discuss the impact of the film.

Marjan Minnesma is the director of the activist organization Urgenda, one of the instigators and responsible parties of the historical climate case against the Dutch state. They argued that the Dutch government  wasn’t taken sufficient action to prevent dangerous climate change. The judge ruled in favour of Urgenda and obliged the government to reduce their CO2 emissions with 25% by 2020. A revolutionary ruling without worldwide predecessor.
