Gorilla Radio with Chris Cook, Jennifer Abbott September 16, 2020

Welcome back to Gorilla Radio’s continuing efforts, NOT broadcast live from CFUV Radio in the basement of the Student Union Building at the University of Victoria, but emanating live-to-tape via Skype from our home-based … studios on this date, September 16th, 2020.

Are there any among you listening not worried about the state of the natural World; any unaware of collapsing populations of insects, of birds, of the fish great and small; any not lamenting the expected fate of the jungle cat, elephant, or polar bear? Are there any of you out there still willing to debate the issue; willing to question the fact and scope of the emerging calamity? And, are there any left who believe it’s not too late to avert climate disaster?

If that’s the case, I’m sorry to be the one to tell you: “Yes, it IS too late, baby”.

But, just because we are past the point of being able to preserve “our way of life” doesn’t mean we can’t still live full and meaningful lives.

Jennifer Abbott is an internationally renowned, award-winning documentary filmmaker. Her screen credits include, ‘A Cow at My Table’, ‘Us & Them’, the short, ‘Brave New Minds’, and the seminal film of our young century, ‘THE CORPORATION’.

Now, the writer, director, editor, sound designer, co-producer, and all ’round indy film bottle-washer has two titles premiering on the Canadian festival circuit, ‘The New Corporation: The Unfortunately Necessary Sequel’, again in collaboration with Joel Bakan, and ‘The Magnitude of All Things’, a deeply personal and poignant film, “explor[ing] the emotional and psychological dimensions of the climate crisis and the relationship between grief and hope in times of personal and planetary change.

Today, Jennifer Abbott and The Magnitude of All Things.
