Directed by Zoe Adlersberg

Songwriter, artist, R.E.M. front man and activist Michael Stipe sits down with long time family friend Jesse Paris-Smith, climate activist, musician, artist and co-founder of Pathway to Paris. They talk about everything from Michael being locked in the basement when they first met at Patti Smith’s, to Pathway to Paris’ impact on climate change awareness, to animal cards.
