The Loud Spring: Collective Paths Out Of The Climate Crisis (1hrs 2 mins) 2022


How could a society look that is able to mitigate climate change? And how can we build it?

The film starts with the question why the CO2 emissions did not decrease since the beginning of UN climate conferences: why have we lost 30 years?

It discusses the problems of “green capitalism”: the need for economic growth inherent to capitalist economies, and the dependence of nation states from economic success on the world market. In this context, we assess the potential of renewable energies and other technological fixes, given the problems of resource depletion.

We ask scientists to describe the consequences of unmitigated climate change: at what point are we now? How do things have to change?

In the second part we depict what in the global climate movement is called “System Change”. How would a society capable of dealing with the problem of climate change more responsibly look?

The Loud Spring shall fuel a strategical debate inside the climate movement.

Voices from the press: 

"Very worth watching!" - Deutschlandfunk Kultur
"Constructive handout for greater understanding and radical rethinking" - Missy Magazin
"Not another film about the effects of the climate crisis. You will also look in vain for instructions on how to live a climate-neutral life through technical solutions." - Telepolis
"An astonishing number of terms describing this new society make aged GDR hearts beat faster." - jungeWelt
"...understands capital not as a fateful natural phenomenon, but as a social relationship. As one that can and must be overcome." - nd
"The film makes clear that workers have the power to change their conditions and society." direkte aktion
"As a climate movement, we must stop expecting help from institutions that pour oil on the fire." - taz
"The film is an offer for discussion to the climate movement, because it shows the possibilities that a joint action of wage earners and climate activists would open up." graswurzelrevolution
"...shows ways for those who are not content to wait for the end of capitalism." hessischer rundfunk
"Mobilising in the best sense." wildcat 110 
"Instead of becoming a journalist and ending up at Springer, you can also work in a factory and prepare for the revolution, says Johanna Schellhagen" analyse & kritik
