About the film
The Seasons Alter
Release Date: December 10, 2002
The world is burning up, icecaps melt, floods drown the landscape and people starve. These images are from a Shakespearean speech that dates from the seventeenth century. Climate change today has twisted the seasons beyond recognition, and the Bard's words describing a 'mazed world' are more relevant now than ever before. 'The Seasons Alter' is a vivid short film that uses Shakespearean poetry in the mouths of a modern family to illustrate the most pressing environmental challenge of our time.
