- Hope in the Time of Climate Crisis
|Synopsis||Russian geophysicist Sergey Zimov and his son Nikita are gathering any large woolly beast they can get their hands on and transporting them to the most remote corner of Siberia. They call their project Pleistocene Park. The goal: restore the Ice Age “mammoth steppe” ecosystem and avoid a catastrophic feedback loop leading to runaway global warming. While Zimov’s lack of diplomacy, and cranky iconoclasm make him a challenge to work with, Nikita, Sergey’s son, is the last man to deal with his father’s idiosyncrasies and carry forward his vision.|
