The Orchard has released the official trailer and set a Jan. 29 digital release date for Matthew Testa’s climate change documentary, “The Human Element.”
In the film, photographer James Balog uses his camera to reveal how environmental change is affecting the lives of everyday Americans.
Balog’s work was previously featured in critically acclaimed, Emmy-winning documentary, “Chasing Ice.”
“The Human Element” documents how the earth’s four elements – fire, earth, air, and water – have all been impacted by a fifth element, homo sapiens.
With his photography, Bolog illustrates issues ranging from rising sea levels to pollution’s impact on asthma cases to focus viewers on a call for change.
