“Can you hear what you’re saying?”
A family on a Sunday. There’s a discussion after lunch. Three generations. The mother – a teacher and a former dissident (the father is absent), her daughter and her husband – both work in the family business specialising in the installation of solar panels, and the younger daughter – a climate protester (she’s seen a psychologist a few times).
The battle lines are drawn within an environmental discourse. Family conversations as today’s battlefield in the climate crisis. Tea anyone? Catalogues of media previews. The outside world in our intimate surroundings. (Is it possible to separate the internal from the external?) How to be an effective subject of change? What defines a hysterical reaction, and who determines the boundaries of what constitutes a “healthy” reaction? Is it at all possible to change society in a “cultivated” way? From the perspective of everyday life, isn’t any protest just an ailment? Hysteria versus passivity.
A study of dialogue. The awakening of collective consciousness. See the future. Let recurring disputes be overgrown with organic vegetation!
