Join us for an evening of short documentaries, from different parts of the world, covering a wide range of topics. Shorts at the Frontline Club showcases moving, striking and funny films, exploring the many different faces of documentary filmmaking. The evening will include short stories capturing the essence of big issues, films showing life in other parts of the world under difficult or extraordinary circumstances, and stories focusing on one particular remarkable event or person.
Carbon Crooks documents the failure of carbon trading, a system set up to cut down carbon emissions and curb global warming. Through interviews and case studies the film investigates the mechanisms of fraud in the carbon markets. This screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Tom Heinemann.
