Wonder what you would find if you frisked the opening film for the United Nations Climate Change Conference 2009 (COP15) in Copenhagen?
Answer: A knockoff of the recent film 2012 and stuffed polar bears. What could go wrong?
HAHA! Yes… This was actually the film that kicked off the UN’s climate change conference. I apologize to the director, Mikkel Blaabjerg Poulsen, ahead of time because I don’t think he intended on creating a dark comedy – but it happened.
First off, I would like to point out that this film was based on an obvious dream or nightmare, which tend to be fantasy and fiction. Hmm… Is that hinting at a deeper meaning within the film like man-made global warming is just all a dream? Perhaps.
Besides looking into the deeper meanings of this short film and laughing, there are some other things that make it quite comical:
- What kind of cable does the family in the film subscribe to? Every single channel seems to be talking about global warming. Give me a break! That’s got to be the lamest service ever.
- A stuffed polar bear… Really!? How cliché and pathetic can you get? Oh wait… The stuffed polar bear got devoured by the ‘dry-cracked-earth-monster’.
- The father in the film sure knows how to comfort his daughter after waking up from a horrible nightmare… By going straight to the computer to look up YouTube videos of bureaucrats and scientists rambling on about their manipulated/false findings. Hey! They got to keep their funding flowing somehow, right?
- And like any good father, you always let your 6 year-old climb up to the top of an apartment complex’s roof with no railings on a rainy day to film herself… Only to be shown with hundreds of other exploited children saying the same thing.
Overall, great video COP15 and Mikkel Blaabjerg Poulsen… You had me quite entertained. 😆
