Each month, we show you a short film that’s moved us beyond the day – meaningful stories that inspire us to pause, think and feel.
A film by Spencer MacDonald, ‘Dear Travelers’ captures the current feelings of climate activists – desperate to be heard. The film depicts longtime environmental activist Rosmarie Wydler-Wälti.
Sitting comfortably and surrounded by nature, she begins to shame viewers for the climate catastrophe that they’ve caused. Her voice is eclipsed by the arresting music of Vivaldi’s ‘Four Seasons’ – a metaphor for nature; louder, more impacting than her voice itself can ever be.
