We’re All Going to Die
Disruption Network Lab presents: We’re All Going To Die, a documentary film by Ben Knight, hosted by Acud Macht Neu Berlin.
The screening is followed by a discussion with the film director, Extinction Rebellion environmental activist Mia Sommer, climate psychologist Katharina Simons, and will be moderated by Veronika Nad.
The main protagonist of the documentary “We are all going to die” Ben Knight, is a journalist afflicted by the encroaching crises he writes about. For his documentary, he travels from Berlin to London to Kansas to Norway, and then to the capital of all loss, the Chicxulub crater in Mexico, learning from those preparing for social and ecological collapse. Call them preppers, doomers, or bunker-dwellers, the collapse community turns out to be bigger than he thinks. After the screening, we will be discussing challenges, strategies of adaptation and perspectives on dealing with the end of civilization as we know it – as well as what helps to make it all more bearable. Because things are getting personal: The climate crisis is here, and we are being asked to cope. But how?
Heatwaves, droughts and floods, mass extinction and mass migration, the looming perspective of ultimate social collapse – enough to scare us out of our minds. Do you fight, take flight, or freeze? How do you stay sane in the face of impending doom?
