21 November 2023

Documentary that premieres in the Special Pass of the FICX61 Gijón/Xixón International Film Festival.

The idea of ​​Asturias as a climate refuge has emerged in public debate as a new tourism paradigm that continues the “natural paradise.” The concept refers to a region that, compared to others, experiences more favorable and less extreme climatic conditions in the context of global climate change. Faced with this process, a group of experts and students with diverse profiles share their thoughts after an evocative trip through Asturias. An opportunity? A risk? Without a doubt, a challenge that this documentary addresses from the convergence between different forms of knowledge.
