With high hopes for the conclusion of an ambitious, universal and legally binding framework for climate action at the end of the UN Climate Change Summit (COP21) in Paris on December 11, the Embassy of France to the Philippines invites the public to the special screening of the French film La glace et le ciel (Ice and Sky) on December 11 and 12, 2015 at the SM Mall of Asia.
Directed by Luc Jacquet, Ice and Sky narrates, through stunning visuals and original footage, the story of French glaciologist Claude Lorius, from the beginning of his career and investigating the Antartic to eventually winning the Blue Planet Prize, which is the equivalent of the Nobel Peace Prize in environmental sciences.
Ice and Sky will also be screened in different countries in time for the end of COP21.
Over 40,000 delegates, comprised of delegates, NGO representatives, journalists, and artists from all over the world, are currently gathered in Paris to conclude a climate agreement to limit global warming and to settle issues such as climate financing and adaptation and mitigation measures.
Last November 30, over 150 Heads of State and Government, including French President François Hollande and Philippine President Benigno Aquino III, expressed their support for the success of this conference and to urge all stakeholders to work towards the conclusion of this agreement in Paris.
Ice and Sky will be screened free of charge to the public on Friday, December 11, 8:00pm and Saturday, December 12, 11:00am at the SM Mall of Asia Cinema 5. Admission is on a first-come, first-served basis.
