This Changes Everything
The Field presents This Changes Everything, the film directed by Avi Lewis, and inspired by Naomi Klein’s international non-fiction bestseller This Changes Everything.
An inspiring look at 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.
The film will be followed by discussion about how climate change affects our community and what is being done locally to leap to the new economy.
