PlymSerafin Production(NO)


Era Productions together with the Norwegian partner PlymSerafin have decided to develop a documentary film, understandable to any viewer, with the urgent and instructive message, that will impact the general view on climate crisis and will openly describe the urgency to start acting on an individual level as well as society as a whole as well as demand political action. The theme of the film will not focus on the presentation of the current state of the climate crisis but will point out the importance of collaboration across society at times of threat to our existence.
