Cinema Green Film Screening @ Haven South Beach | Miami Beach | Florida | United States


Cinema Green is screening the performance film JALOBAYU (Climate.Water.Wind.) and an excerpt from HER WORDS: STORYTELLING WITH SARIS along with a world premiere of a brand new film about Bangladesh and climate change called THIRTY MILLION by Daniel Price and Adrien Taylor, which includes an interview of Monica Jahan Bose. There will be Q & A with artist/activist Monica Jahan Bose.

WHAT DO MIAMI & BANGLADESH HAVE IN COMMON? They are amongst the most vulnerable regions in the world to the effects of storm-related flooding and sea-level rise caused by climate change: Bangladesh – millions of people at risk. Miami – billions in assets at risk.

Award-winning artist/activist Monica Jahan Bose, in partnership with ECOMB’s Cinema Green Project and Haven South Beach, will screen three short documentaries on the impact of climate change on Bangladesh and on its low lying communities. The screening is free and will be followed by a talk-back session with Monica Jahan Bose.

HER WORDS: STORYTELLING WITH SARIS by Monica Jahan Bose and New York-based Bangladeshi filmmaker Nandita Ahmed (
A short excerpt will be screened from this documentary about a collaborative printmaking and story project highlighting the achievement of literacy by women in the remote island community of Katakhali, Bangladesh, which is artist/activist Monica Jahan Bose’s ancestral village and part of an eco-empowerment program started by Samhati, a US-based non-profit group of Bangladeshi-American women. Katakhali village is located on the island of Barobaishdia in Patuakhali District and is one of the southernmost islands of Bangladesh, an area severely impacted by climate change.

JALOBAYU (Climate. Water. Wind.) by Monica Jahan Bose.
JALOBAYU is a 7 minute film about a performance art installation during Miami Basel 2014. JALOBAYU juxtaposes Bangladeshi coastal women’s words and their worn saris against the backdrop of the rising ocean in Miami Beach. Women from Miami, including members of One Billion Rising – Miami, joined the performance. By physically and emotionally linking coastal communities, JALOBAYU speaks to the global problem of climate change and our need to work together to address it. Videography and photography: Ambika and Peter Samarthya-Howard.

THIRTY MILLION by Daniel Price and Adrien Taylor.
This 35-minute film references the estimated 30 million individuals who may be displaced in Bangladesh due to climate change. Bangladesh is often described as the most vulnerable country on the planet in the face of a changing climate. This film, funded by United Nations Development Fund and the Global Environmental Facility, takes a close look at the human impact of climate change. THIRTY MILLION is being screened on April 1 for the first time worldwide.
