"Guardians of the Earth" tells the story of how 195 governments gathered in Paris and agreed to pursue efforts to limit temperature increase for planet Earth to a maximum of 1.5°C. Unreleased behind-closed-doors footage gives insight into the ground-breaking December 2015 agreement. The documentary highlights the dilemma top negotiators faced between solidarity and perceived national self-interest.
Filled with interviews with the key architects of the agreement, the film reveals the clash of forces which shaped the agreement and which continue to influence its implementation today.
