Marijn Poels



Policy: Award-winning Dutch filmmaker Marijn Poels: "The Uncertainty Has Settled"
A young, left-wing filmmaker returns to Europe from working in the developing world, only to find farmers are growing wind farms, not potatoes, and no one wants to answer his questions on climate science or policy. He discusses his odyssey. His film is winner of Best Documentary: LA, Berlin, Paris.
