Hollow Tree is a tool for a cultural shift in how we understand the climate crisis. While severe weather is often linked to climate change, the climate crisis is usually presented as something too big to understand, an abstraction that predicts doom with no real connection to our communities. Young people are grappling with new ways to understand the signs of climate change and how decisions about the environment have left us where we are today. Our overarching goal is to inspire audiences to have curiosity about the places they live – its past and its future - and cultivate a greater sense of belonging and political will. Engagement with the film will connect audiences to their communities and to their local resources, relating to climate policy, relocation policy, federal recognition processes, and climate change education.
