"Comfort Zone" documentary brings climate change close to home

Three screenings of  “Comfort Zone: a Documentary Exploring Effects of Climate Change in Upstate New York” will be hosted by the SUNY Fredonia FACE Center and the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Northern Chautauqua during the first week of November.

The feature-length film will be shown on Sunday, Nov. 3, at 1:30 p.m. at the Fredonia Grange Hall, 58 W. Main St; Thursday, Nov. 7, at 8 p.m., at Jewett Hall Room 101; and Friday, Nov. 8, at 7:30 p.m., at the SUNY Fredonia Technology Incubator, 214 Central Ave., Dunkirk.

In it, three Rochester-based filmmakers set out to answer a simple question -- what will climate change mean for our homes? What does climate change mean in a place where it is not an obvious threat? Where sea level rise isn't a factor, and frankly, where people might like it warmer? "Comfort Zone" brings the issue of climate change to a local and personal level. It is the story of the surprising outcomes when we try and translate this global problem to our individual lives.

The film was produced and directed by Rochester residents Kate Kressmann-Kehoe, Sean P. Donnelly and David S. Danesh.

All screenings are free and open to the public.
