Jenny Deller visits to introduce Future Weather, her debut feature, which has been garnering praise and awards on the indie film fest circuit.

Inspired by a New Yorker article on global warming, Future Weather follows an environmentally conscious teenage girl (Perla Haney-Jardine) who must come to terms with her alcoholic grandmother (Amy Madigan) when her unstable mom abandons her. Her teacher (Lili Taylor) and their shared passion for science provide a welcome refuge for the girl. Writer/director Deller creates a highly original portrayal of women and their cross-generational relationships, using science and the environment as a backdrop. The film was selected for the Independent Film Project (IFP) Lab program in 2011. (100 mins., HDCAM)

Generous support for presentations by visiting filmmakers is provided by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
