About the Movie

From independent filmmakers Steve Dorst and Dan Evans comes Shattered Sky: The Battle for Energy, Economy, and Environment. Eerily reminiscent of today's climate-change crisis, Shattered Sky recounts the dramatic story of how America led the world to solve the biggest environmental crisis ever seen. Thirty years ago, scientists reported a hole in the ozone layer the size of North America. The culprit was CFCs, prevalent in billions of dollars worth of products likes refrigeration and air conditioning that had revolutionized the American way of life. Doctors forecasted skyrocketing cancer: the stakes were life as we know it. But business remained bitterly opposed and politicians were initially slow to act. For the first time in film, Shattered Sky goes inside the ozone crisis to explore how America led the world to a solution. It inspires viewers toward the same can-do spirit on climate change today.

Must-see viewing

Riveting. Relevant. Necessary. As the planet continues to heat, ice caps melt, and glaciers retreat at a pace never seen, government sits gridlocked, unable and unwilling to act. It is easy to get discouraged and assume our fate has already been written. But "Shattered Sky" offers a rich cinematic breath of hope. In the 1980s government confronted and took on a similar environmental crisis: the Ozone layer.
Using that campaign and drawing it's cinematic inspiration from such visual tour-de-force films as "Koyaanisqasti", "Shattered Sky" digs deep into the movement to solve the Ozone hole to show that America, despite opposition from lobbying groups, is indeed capable of coming together to solve a crisis. We can only hope that the powers-that-be see the film to remind them of their own recent history before it is too late.
