Second Hour on Oct. 15

Second Hour October 15 will feature the 24-minute film, “Confronting Climate Change.” As part of Williams College’s alternative to divesting, it invited a group of prominent climate justice speakers to campus during the 2016-2017 academic year, including Bill McKibben, James Hansen, Van Jones, Maxine Burkett and others.

Pulitzer Prize–winning author Elizabeth Kolbert interviewed each, which Sarah Gardner of the Center for Environmental Studies and cinematographer David Simonds recorded. The result is a graphic report on how students, the college and the world should respond to an existential threat. The filmmakers will be present for discussion following only the third public showing of this film.
