The Climate Crisis grips the world. Every industry works towards bringing information to the people through their own medium. The film industry has worked at creating versions of nature to show the adverse effects on the environment. This Environment Day, let us look at a few films that focus on the various iterations of nature.

Don’t Look Up (2021)
We know that an Asteroid attack is different from an Environmental Crisis. However, the change in nature is one to be explored. In this Adam McKay ensemble Comedy of a star cast that includes Leonardo DiCaprio, Meryl Streep, Jennifer Lawrence and many more, we see how ignoring the change in nature shapes events.
