Not just another climate change film, 2 Degrees is a riveting political thriller set against the backdrop of the UN climate negotiations, leading into the real solution to the world's climate challenge: the power of the people. The film is an emotional ride from the despair of the bureaucratic process to the thrill of tapping into the transformative momentum of community.

As the world waits in hope for a new dawn on climate change, 2 Degrees reveals the chaotic failure of the UN negotiations in Copenhagen. It becomes chillingly clear that we cannot wait for governments to lead the way. So if commitment to act won’t come from above, perhaps the voices and actions of communities will bring the revolution that is needed. 2 Degrees takes to the streets of Port Augusta, a small Australian town, and follows the passionate efforts to replace the coal fired power stations with solar thermal power.

From the award‐winning producer of The Burning Season and The Man Who Stole My Mother’s Face, 2 Degrees explores climate change through the prism of climate justice. While An Inconvenient Truth alerted us to the problem of climate change, 2 Degrees is the gripping and vital fight for solutions.

Local woman Ange Palmer is the co-producer of 2 Degrees and has kindly offered to run a screening as a supporting event for the 'Oil on Canvas' Art Exhibition and donate 50% of the profits to our campaing work.
