CERN’s open-air CineGlobe International Film Festival

From 6 to 10 July 2016, Ciné-ONU was part of CERN’s open-air CineGlobe International Film Festival.

For the love of films inspired by science and promoting themes close to the United Nations’ heart, the UN Information Service in Geneva and CERN’s CineGlobe joined forces to propose a dynamic selection of films during the latter’s film festival.

Ciné-ONU brought two films to the 2016 programme: Sony Pictures’ blockbuster The Angry Birds Movie, and the documentary La Glace et le Ciel (Ice and the Sky), by renowned French director Luc Jacquet (The Emperor’s March).

On Friday 8 July, families and friends enjoyed the fun-filled animated movie Angry Birds. They discovered why Red, the main Angry Birds character, was made a UN honorary ambassador and were inspired to take individual action on protecting the environment to make this planet a better and happier place.

Then, on Saturday 9 July, on the grounds of the Museum of the History of Science, Ciné-ONU goers enjoyed the stunningly beautiful La Glace et le Ciel (Ice and Sky), a documentary tracing the steps of glaciologist and climate visionary Claude Lorius, who helped change our vision of the world as his team discovered the origins of climate change by drilling down the Antarctic icefields in the 1950s.
