Filmmaker Claudia Medina on 'Life After Growth'

Filmmaker Claudia Medina.

Vancouver- and Barcelona-based filmmaker Claudia Medina recently screened the short documentary "Life After Growth" which she co-directed with Leah Temper, at the De-Growth Conference in Vancouver. Medina spoke to Am Johal over the phone from her hometown of Powell River, B.C.

Am Johal: I was at a conference a while back where a few economists were speaking about the economic collapse. After they spoke, I couldn't believe the anger generated toward them. A lot of people just said, ‘why should we listen to you people anymore?' There also seems to be a rising chorus of people looking at GDP as an outdated economic indicator in the context of climate change. What's your take on that?
