Total running time: 80 min.

Content warning: These films all touch, in one way or another, on environmental issues and the plight of the planet during our present period of climate change. They are uplifting films that we hope will promote discussion at home. The Promise shows a dystopian city; Oasis is a fable about the environmental collapse and recovery of a small ecosystem, and contains some imagery that may be scary to the most sensitive young viewers. Coyote and Big Buff is a fable created by kids who have experienced the trauma of losing their home to a wildfire.

In an ocean infested by plastic, a little being leaves their reef and goes on an adventure with a jellyfish.
