The global blockbuster "Snowpiercer" was made in 2013, but it's already considered a classic "cli-fi" movie. Cli-fi stands for ''climate fiction'', a new fiction genre that deals with climate change and global warming. The film, which stars Ed Harris, John Hurt and Chris Evans, focuses on the survivors of a future Ice Age, who live out their lives in a train that travels in a continuous loop around the Earth. Screenwriter Kelly Masterson provided commentary after a screening of the movie.
