About the film:
Official Selection of Tribeca Film Festival 2012. Abandoned by her dreamer single mom, a teenage loner becomes obsessed with ecological disaster, forcing her and her grandmother, a functioning alcoholic, to rethink their futures. Inspired by a New Yorker article on global warming, Jenny Deller’s debut feature Future Weather uses the refuge of science and the environment as a backdrop to examine the intertwining lives of three generations of women.
