Local teen's film to screen at Sebastiani Theater

Rosie Keller
Eighteen-year-old Rosie Keller wants people to realize that climate change is a real, looming crisis, and that little actions they take day-to-day can have amazing, and positive consequences. To this end, she has written and produced a documentary called SOLUTIONS - A Film on Climate Change, premiering August 5 at the Sebastiani Theater in Sonoma.

Keller grew up splitting her childhood between Kenwood and the mountains of Adelboden, Switzerland. Connection to these two places gave her a unique perspective for her film, which features familiar Sonoma Valley faces like rancher, grape grower and Kenwood Press columnist George MacLeod, and apple farmer, entrepreneur and Kenwood resident Kendra Kolling, as well as Adolf Ogi, former president and foreign minister of Switzerland, and Hans Pieren, director of the Adelboden FIS World Cup (Ski racing).

A science-buff, Keller realized how little her contemporaries seemed to know about climate change. Long-passionate about film as a powerful communication tool, she felt this was the perfect opportunity to combine two of her interests - and make a difference while doing it.

Keller takes viewers on a three-part tour, explaining how climate change is expected to effect the global population; then focusing in on her village of Adelboden as an example of how climate change will influence everyday lives and what a community can do to lower its carbon footprint. Finally, the film shows ways individuals can make a difference in halting or reversing the effects of climate change and the impact their actions would make.

Keller will speak before the Sebastiani screening and will be available afterwards (with some special guests) for a question and answer session.

The event begins at 7 p.m. Tickets, $8, can be purchased at the door. The theater is located on the square in Sonoma at 476 1st Street East.
