My first pick Airsick: An Industrial Devolution is sourced from Media Storm, an award-winning multimedia production studio, working with top visual storytellers, interactive designers and global organizations to create cinematic narratives that speak to the heart of the human condition.
In Airsick: An Industrial Devolution Toronto Star Photographer Lucas Oleniuk tackles the global issue of climate change through a local approach.
With the exception of two images, all 20,000 photographs were shot in Ontario, Canada. But they illustrate a global problem. With a haunting original score by Randy Risling and evocative quotes, Airsick plays out like an unsettling dream.
“We’re addicted to fossil fuels and our infrastructure reflects that,” says Oleniuk. “My hope is that one day this film will be seen as the way we used to do things.”
