This Changes Everything/ Climate Action Film

“A film that brings our peril into focus and what we might learn from despair.” -Alice Walker, author and activist

“Purposely unsettling… Ultimately encouraging. - Variety Magazine

“If you care about justice you must see this.” -Kumi Naidoo, Former Director at Greenpeace International

**Crucial Climate Action 89 minute film with audience/ panel discussion afterwards.

Filmed over 211 shoot days in nine countries and five continents over four years, This Changes Everything is an epic attempt to re-imagine the vast challenge of climate change.

Shocking and inspiring film based on Author/Activist Naomi Klein’s international non-fiction bestseller This Changes Everything. Seven communities on the front lines are portrayed-from Montana’s Powder River Basin to the Alberta Tar Sands, from the coast of South India to Beijing and beyond.

Interwoven with these stories of struggle is Klein’s narration, connecting the carbon in the air with the economic system that put it there. Throughout the film, Klein builds to her most controversial and exciting idea: that we can seize the existential crisis of climate change to transform our failed economic system into something radically better. Directed by Avi Lewis.
