This Changes Everything
Bring something to sit on and whatever you need to stay warm and dry
What if confronting the climate crisis is the best chance we’ll ever get to
build a better world? Filmed over over four years in nine countries and five continents, This Changes Everything is an epic attempt to re-imagine the vast challenge of climate change.
Directed by Avi Lewis, and inspired by Naomi Klein’s international non-fiction bestseller This Changes Everything, the 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.
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.
Presented in conjunction with Lambeth for a Cool Planet and the South London Botanical Institute.
