In The Hottest August, filmmaker Brett Story takes us to New York City in August, 2017, to meet a city reeling not only from the heat of the thick, humid season, but also from the oppressive themes of the daily news: hurricanes, wildfires, a white supremacist march, and a new president. By way of interviews with a wide variety of city residents, Story calls to attention the urgency of climate change and the pervasive anxiety for our future. (Brett Story, 2019, USA, 94 minutes)
