This Changes Everything

Year: 2015

Genre: Documentary

Duration: 89 mins

Starring:

Director: Avi Lewis

Inspired by Naomi KleinÌ_s international non-fiction bestseller. Filmed over 211 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.

Directed by Avi Lewis, the film presents seven powerful portraits of communities on the front lines, from MontanaÌ_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 KleinÌ_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. What if confronting the climate crisis is the best chance weÌ_ll ever get to build a better world?
