The Magnitude of All Things is a cinematic exploration of the emotional and psychological dimensions of climate change.
When Jennifer Abbott lost her sister to cancer, her sorrow opened her up to the profound gravity of climate breakdown, drawing intimate parallels between the experiences of grief—both personal and planetary. Stories from the frontlines of climate change merge with recollections from the filmmaker’s childhood on Ontario’s Georgian Bay. What do these stories have in common? The answer, surprisingly, is everything.
This is a conversation about making beautiful, compelling climate-engaged media with Sundance award-winning documentary maker Jennifer Abbott, and composer Rob Law.
