Over the past year, in particular, debates over climate and environment have divided many of us. In a shift from arguing to listening, we hear from a commercial farmer, an indigenous elder, and a convert to environmental action on what ‘the land’ means to them. What underpins their world view? Do they have common ground?
We all love the movies, but have they become a cultural battleground? Critics love Nomadland but Thor packs in the audiences. Women Oscar nominees are a talking point. Studio heads (yep, Harvey) have been ousted. Coppola calls comic-book movies ‘despicable’, while Scorsese says they aren’t even cinema. Are the Hollywood days over, or are the movies as good as they ever were?
