How has the recent rise in awareness of our planet’s environmental crisis changed the way we tell stories? Such a wide, sweeping issue with such potentially devastating consequences can press itself into the general consciousness and affect creators all around the globe, allowing for an urgent and massive impact on what stories we choose to tell and how we choose to tell them. While there has been a recent surge in both apocalyptic and dystopian films, the question remains as to whether these are tied to the environmental crisis, sourced outside said crisis, or resting somewhere in between.
It would help to use a few examples like Mad Max: Fury Road, which was a very pro-environmentalist film. – luminousgloom4 years ago
