It's Okay to Panic (2020)


​"It’s Okay to Panic" is a nostalgic portrait of 62-year-old Professor Szymon Malinowski, Director of the Institute of Geophysics at the University of Warsaw, who worries that climate change may cause human civilisation to collapse in the coming decades. A career educator, Prof. Malinowski studies phenomena leading to climate change and for years he has been raising the alarm about the threats we face. The film visits him at a moment when he must deal with a personal tragedy. The film is available in 4K and has subtitle options in English, Spanish, Polish, and Russian.

Our movie has been watched by over 700K people, but the reality is that almost 38 MILLION people live in Poland. So let's raise climate awareness by raising this film’s view count to represent every single person in Poland, because climate change is an issue so big that every single person needs to know about it! We are officially starting the "38 Million Views" educational campaign to show the world that climate education is the top priority! We encourage you to share this film widely across social media, tell your friends/families/colleagues about it, and join the campaign's FB Event:
