A young girl is forced to confront inconvenient truths both global and personal in the drama Future Weather. Making her Tribeca debut, director Jenny Deller has gathered a cast that includes Amy Madigan, Lili Taylor, and William Sadler to tell the story of a teenager (Perla Haney-Jardine) who's abandoned by her mother and tries to compensate through an obsession with climate change. Reflecting its protagonist's concerns, the Philadelphia-based project was shot while following sustainable production practices -- the drama may break your heart, but at least you won't feel guilty about the environmental impact.

For the final entry in my Tribeca 2012 Diary, I met with Jenny at the Tribeca production offices for our interview. Our discussion is below.
