This film presents seven powerful portraits of communities on the front lines, from Montana’s Powder River Basin to the Alberta Tar Sands, from the coast of South India to Beijing and beyond. Provocative, compelling, and accessible to even the most climate-fatigued viewers, THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING will leave you refreshed and inspired, reflecting on the ties between us, the kind of lives we really
want, and why the climate crisis is at the center of it all.
Topics: Climate change, policy, environment, social justice, biodiversity, global implications of climate disruption, fossil fuels, economics.
Talkback with panelists Nancy Manring, Arts and Sciences Sustainability Theme leader; Edna Wangui, Geography; Eddie Smith, Environmental Studies student.
“Klein and those impassioned protesters provide something that has been in short supply in the predecessors – namely, a modicum of hope for the future.” – Michael Rechtshaffen, Los Angeles Times
“It distinguishes itself among similar planet-loving docs by showing evidence there is hope in what can often seem an overwhelming bleak task to begin repairs to an industrial-damaged world.” – Linda Barnard, Toronto Star
