Once You Know is a feature documentary that explores the possibility of climate-induced collapse, our dismay in the face of uncertainty, and ways to adapt to unavoidable changes while moving towards a desirable future.
Once you know is the intimate journey of director Emmanuel Cappellin across the abyss of a world at the edge of climate-induced collapse. His voyage into this uncharted territory is that of a whole generation turning to climate scientists, local democracy, grassroots initiatives, and mass rebellion in a courageous search for an exit.
Profoundly moved by the film’s message, audiences in international festivals and cinemas (Once You Know was theatrically released in France on September 22, 2021) have mobilized to spread the film’s impact campaign by organizing post-screening discussions in theaters, and distributing an Action Guide with over a 150 concrete ways to address issues related to energy, climate, collapse, and resilience. A print version of this Guide is available for French speakers.
The collaborative online version of this Action Guide, designed to be a solutions-oriented and action-oriented portal for all, is currently available on our Tree of actions page.
