Grain Of Sand In The Gears – short film – Germanwatch

One of the three winners of the Germanwatch screenplay competition about Climate Justice by Veselina Vasileva.

The short film “Grain Of Sand In The Gears” shows the connection between the anthropogenetic causes of climate change and the impact on nature and people, living mainly in developing countries. The short film attaches importance to the key issue of the responsibility of every single one of us and asks the audience: “What every single one of us can do against climate change?”
Enough has been said, we need to act immediately, it is up to us.
