The aim of international climate change policy is to limit global warming
to two degrees Celsius. But scientists believe that a temperature rise of
just 1.5 degrees could lead to irreversible damage to ecosystems and
terrestrial and marine areas

* SCIENCE MEETS MUSIC.* The style of 1.5 Stay Alive is part music video and
part factual. In it, popular Caribbean musicians express their experiences
with rising seas by composing and performing songs about climate change,
and their visions of how to confront it.
Intertwined throughout the film are insights by scientists and local
climate experts. The film visits Belize, Costa Rica, Trinidad + Tobago,
Haiti, Miami and Louisiana. These regions are examples of the areas that
will be, and are, affected by rising seas.
The film ‘1.5 – Stay Alive’ by Spanish film-maker Lucian Segura takes a
closer look at this issue using the example of the Caribbean region. He
describes the far-reaching consequences such warming will have for
biodiversity, fish stocks, coastal protection and the survival of Caribbean
coral reefs. The documentary also shows how climate change will impact the
people who live on the islands and along the Caribbean coastlines and whose
living space and homeland is increasingly being lost. *1.5 – STAY ALIVE is
equally adapted to be screened at climate rallies, in cinemas or in
educational settings in almost any part of the world. * *EXPERTS*
