"What's Possible" 3 minutes, what's possible

"This is the story of how a three-minute film watched by over 120 world leaders at the United Nations Climate Summit's opening session in NYC was produced by a newly empty nested mother of three who had never produced a minute of film before. It began 26 years ago when my friend, Cindy Horn, and I were pregnant with our first born and concerned about what the scientific community was telling us about the man-made threat to the planet that was soon to welcome our innocent babies."

"Presented to world leaders at the 2014 United Nations Climate Summit in New York, this short film shows that climate change is solvable. We have the technology to harness nature sustainably for a clean, prosperous energy future, but only if we act now. Narrated by Morgan Freeman, What's Possible calls on the people of the world to insist leaders get on the path of a livable climate and future for humankind."

What's Possible was created by director Louie Schwartzberg, writer Scott Z. Burns, Moving Art Studio, and Lyn Davis Lear and the Lear Family Foundation. It features the creative gifts of Morgan Freeman and composer Hans Zimmer.
