It’s Okay to Panic, the new film by the creators of Smog Wars, will be released on 1st June 2020. The film’s production was supported by PRZEKRÓJ Foundation.
Jonathan Ramsey, the director of the Smog Wars documentary, pursues the topic of climate change in his films. The main character and narrator of his new documentary It’s Okay to Panic is Professor Szymon Malinowski, an atmospheric physicist at the University of Warsaw. For years, the scientist has been raising the alarm about the climate threats we face. Professor Malinowski also works for the Polish science portal naukaoklimacie.pl, which focuses on delivering news about climate change and debunking climate myths published by the media.
In the documentary, the scientist evaluates the way the climate has changed during his lifetime. He reflects on what should be done to prevent the upcoming catastrophe and, most of all, how to communicate this to other people. After all, acting globally is the only way in which we can avoid many frightening consequences.
