Hello Dan: First of all, thank you so much for having accepted and for your enthusiasm, I really do appreciate. Please find my questions below this message and feel free to ask me if there is something wrong or unclear about it. The questions are in English because my studies are in English and so I have to write my Ph.D in English. Also, please pardon my mistakes if there are so. Take the time you need to answer them.
I quickly checked out the different websites you sent me and I will go through them deeper right away.
Once again, thank you so very much for your help and for the stuff about your work (both in French and in English).
I can give you a follow -since I saw you have Twitter as well- to thank you!
3. MORE QUESTIONS: with my answers to her:
> 2)Today, 'Cli-Fi' genre is a new emerging genre in cinema with films like Snowpiercer, Mad Max, The Revenant, Interstellar or Blade Runner in the past couple of years. In your opinion, what makes these films 'Cli-Fi'? Is it because of the sub-text/metaphor in them?
> 3)With all these kind of films that are released and that are presented as 'Cli-Fi', isn't it much harder today to differenciate easier films that are really 'Cli-Fi', with somehow a real meassage/a real metaphor of climate change, by presenting events or actions that are relevent (like Christopher Nolan and Interstellar) from just blockbusters movies (like recently Geostorm) that just put the stress on CGI and survival without any real intentions to sensibilise/warn the audience?
> 4)How important is the term 'Cli' in 'Cli-Fi' films?
> 5)You coined the words 'Cimate' with 'Fiction' to get 'Cli-Fi'. This term automatically makes us think of 'Sci-Fi'. Films that deal with ecology often take place in a post-apocalyptic world.
> Do you think that it is mandatory for them to take place in a dystopian world? And so, what makes these films more 'Cli' than any other genres like 'Sci' for instance?
> 6)Do you think that 'Cli-Fi' films are all sensitive to climate change?
> 7)Before the past couple of years and the arrival of many 'Cli-Fi' films that we have just seen before, it seems that there were not that much of them, apart from The Day After Tomorrow (in 2004), and that the main genre was the documentary. One can think of Al Gore's An Inconvenient Truth or Leonardo DiCaprio's 11th Hour, ten years ago. Some of them were criticised because of the way they presented our actions on the earth negatively and also because they did not give any clues to change our habits and our way of living. They were considered pessimistic and lesson givers.
> Do you think 'Cli-Fi' films have to be different (from documentaries) in their message and depiction? and from the moment on these films are considered to be 'Cli-Fi', isn't it reluctant for the audience to go see a film that might be lesson giver?
2. When films are released under the label 'Cli-Fi', who decides to call them like that?
