SP Weather Station presents

Film screening: October 30th at 5pm

Please join SP Weather Station for a weather-related film series followed by informal discussion and refreshments. “Owning the Weather” (2009) by Robert Greene is a documentary film about weather modification and climate engineering. SP Weather Station will introduce the film with a series of shorts.

From Machiasport, Maine, to Palo Alto, California, people are talking about the weather.  But can they do anything about it? This poetic, ironic, and beautifully shot film answers that question by juxtaposing interviews with weather scientists and lay obsessives—including climate scientists, television meteorologists, air-conditioning technicians, and Weather Channel junkies—with evocative images that subtly comment on the way humans interact with their environments. Moving us deftly through an ominous exposé of failed experiments, and treating us to breathtaking encounters with sublime forces of nature, director Robert Greene examines the heckered history of weather modification schemes and their implications for climate change. This compelling study of science, nature, ingenuity, and eccentricity unfolds—accompanied by an arch and oddly nostalgic sci-fi score—as a stark meditation on, and cautionary tale about, our all too human need to control.
