The Netherlands, 2018
Followed by a Q&A
Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh has a revolutionary proposal to tackle the climate problem. “The way out is in,” he states. “The way out of climate change is inside each of us.” His invitation is to stop: to stop running and to take a good look at what is really going on; to what our visions are, on which we base our behaviour, how our thought patterns and our emotions work, and why we are climatologically in trouble. In silence we can better understand ourselves and the earth. In The Way Out we follow two young people, a Brasilian banker and a British activist, during a stressful period in their lives. Will they be able to save the earth – beginning with(in) themselves?
