7 climate change movies that you shouldn’t miss

Arnold Schwarzenegger quoted “I’ve starred in a lot of science fiction movies and, let me tell you something, climate change is not science fiction. This is a battle in the real world; it is impacting us right now."

Those with less knowledge about climate change get educated by a movie, that’s why it’s very important to make movies on the environment and the problem it’s facing. Even though the world is in lockdown but still environment issues have not alleviated.

So, here we present you 7 movies that have focused taper on climate change.


1.Erin Brockovich: This movie is about a single mother with 3 kids, who become a legal assistant and fights against the energy corporation Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) regarding its culpability for the Hinckley groundwater contamination incident. It’s an uplift movie with strong acting, moving script, a very important topic, and has given full justice to the true incident.

2. Women at war: A thoughtful and dynamic blend of genres, contemporary environmental fable “Woman at War” continually thrills with a side of laughs. The movie is about Halla, a 50-year-old environmental activist who crusades against the local aluminum industry in Iceland. As her actions grow bolder, her life changed in the blink of an eye when she is finally granted permission to adopt a girl from Ukraine. It strikes a perfect balance between delivering a character study, an urgent environmental and societal message as well as some good old-fashioned entertainment.

3. Interstellar: The movie exhibits the future as the earth becomes inhabitable and how a NASA physicist, is working on plans to save mankind by transporting Earth's population to a new home via a wormhole. But first, he sends former NASA pilot “Cooper” and a team of researchers through the wormhole and across the galaxy to find out which of three planets could be mankind's new home. Climate change is not mentioned but the movie emphasis ecological collapse, with drastic changes in weather patterns and devastating food shortages driving human beings to the brink of extinction.

4. Beasts of the Southern Wild: It is sheer poetry on screen, an explosion of joy amid startling squalor, and one of the most original films; I have come across in a while. It’s about a 6-year-old girl “Hushpuppy” whose father is ill and her house is flooded. The place she lives in is the wilderness of poverty where a small community struggles to survive. The movie is beautifully written, exquisitely shot, and morally strong.

5. The Day After Tomorrow: The film is all about extreme climatic changes that lead to hurricanes, sandstorms, and eventually global cooling. It deals with Jack Hall, a scientist, who discusses that global warming might lead to another ice age. The film presents an opportunity to explain that some of the basic backgrounds are right: humans are increasingly changing the climate and this is quite a dangerous experiment, including some risk of abrupt and unforeseen changes.

6. Geostorm: The movie unprecedented series of natural disasters threatening our planet, Earth. It provides a vivid picture of how dire the situation can become if we continue causing harm to the environment for our greed. It highlights the fact that natural disasters are inevitable but if we make an effort in changing our habits, we will be able to sustain better. Keeping aside the visuals, if one gets past these, flights of imagination, then Geostorm can be considered a worth watching sci-fi/eco-disaster movie.

7. Our Man Flint: This movie focuses on a nefarious organization galaxy, described as being even bigger than specter, (it’s a Bond movie) that gains control over the world’s weather patterns. When one controls the weather, they can control the sea levels, volcanic activity, and hurricanes, among other things. The movie’s pace moves along at a moderate speed. It’s a good commercial Bond movie that talks about climate change but it’s more of a spy-fi comedy film.
