Samuel in the Clouds

logo-seriously-sustainableFrom the former ski resort on Chacaltaya, Bolivia’s highest mountain, ski-lift operator Samuel looks wishfully at the mountain top. At an altitude of 5 km, this peak used to be snow-covered. Now, for the most part the familiar glacier is simply a pile of sand. Successive generations of his family have lived and worked in the snow-covered mountains, but now the snow has gone. While scientists measure and discuss the changes, Samuel honours the ancient mountain spirits and hopes the snow will return.

With majestic scenes of the Bolivian Andes, Samuel in the Clouds shows the consequences of climate change for the people of South America. This major societal problem is made palpable in the film through the focus on one man whose way of life is under threat.

The film is being screened as part of Seriously Sustainable: a week of various sustainable activities (10 to 16 Oct.), organised by  Green Office Wageningen and WUR. On Monday 10 October, Jeroen Vos (WUR) will be our guest and Amara Onwuka (RTL weather forecast) has been invited to the screening on Friday 14 October. These guest speakers will give a short introduction and after the film a Q&A.
