Wageningen Dialogue

CineScience movietalk: First Reformed

How to deal with climate depression? In First Reformed, a grieving priest is tasked with giving council to an emotionally unstable environmentalist who has given up hope that the world will heal from climate change. In her talk, dr. Abigail Muscat talks about the role of hope on a heating planet. Inspired by the philosophical works of Hannah Arendt and Albert Camus, she asks the same questions facing the priest: Should we continue to hope for a better future? And how to do that then? Questions relevant for many of us these days, and a relevant topic to touch upon during WUR’s Surf Your Stress Week.

The introduction by Abigail Muscat will be in English. The movie is English spoken with Dutch subtitles.
