Heat

Drama 12m 2020

In a nerve-racking - scientifically based - climate change thriller, residents of a neighborhood plagued by an all-consuming heatwave fight for their lives while rediscovering the value of humanity in times of hopelessness. Heat was shot during the COVID-19 lockdown in the summer of 2020 in Amsterdam, under the strictest protocols. Together with the cultural climate campaign Warming Up, this series aims to clarify what impact climate change can have on us in the short term, in our everyday lives. No collapsing icebergs or stray polar bears, but sudden heat waves in an unprepared city, with power outages, no running water, and coagulating proteins in the human body. The effects of climate change are closer than you might think.
