A film about man’s attempts to stop a tornado.

The Weather War is a documentary/art film about man’s attempts to control the weather and harness it for his own purposes. In a blend of land art performance and road movie, artist duo Bigert & Bergström travel to the US tornado belt with their special machine-sculpture, the Tornado Diverter. The goal is to stop a tornado.
From a larger perspective, the film features the problems faced worldwide due to global climate change. How do we meet those challenges? Do we adapt? Or do we wage war against increasingly aggressive weather?
This is the final film of the trilogy, which Bigert & Bergström have been working with since 2002, dealing with the human obsession with control.

 

Bigert & Bergström is a Stockholm-based artist duo. Their creative partnership first began in 1986, and have since become internationally recognized for a wide range of conceptually and technically complex art projects Through their career, Bigert & Bergström have produced and created art projects ranging from large-scale sculptures and installations to performance and film. Often with a conceptual edge, the core of their work is placed right in the junction between humanity, nature and technology. With energetic curiosity and often using humor as a tool, the duo is known to analyze scientific and social issues discussed in contemporary society, such as climate change or environmental sustainability.
