Day Zero can be a starting point or an end. Surely it’s a turning point in history. Are we saving this planet for the future or are we destroying our environment to gain more economic growth? Through the eyes of people living close to nature, we are invited to experience pristine nature at risk and the question of how to balance our relationship with our environment. Are we part of a problem or part of a solution?
Day Zero is portraying climate change in a different way - by immersing the viewer in nature’s bounty and by listening to stories told by local people. Filmmaker Nils Bökamp has identified unique spots around the world where nature’s pristine wilderness and beauty are threatened to be lost by the effects of climate change.
