Jared P. Scott is an award-winning filmmaker. Jared's climate films have been released theatrically (US, Canada, UK), premiered at top-tier festivals and distributed in over 200 countries and territories. They have also screened at high-level events. His films helped spark the fossil fuel divestment movement and galvanized the largest climate march in history days before the 2014 UN Climate Summit.

"Years ago, I married my love of storytelling and film with my passion for this issue. We all wanted to find a unique way to tell this story. It was exciting to use music. Inna is writing it whilst she is opening up emotionally and intellectually to the experiences of the GGW. We see her process her experiences in real time: from being aware to having an acute understanding of people's issues. This feels authentic, rather than scripted. It was organic - like a diary written in the present tense by a singer and environmentalist with deep local connections. I want the audience of this film to be in every moment." [Jared P. Scott]
