THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING (2015): What if confronting the climate crisis is the best chance we'll ever get to build a better world? Filmed 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 and inspired by Naomi Klein's international nonfiction bestseller "This Changes Everything, Capitalism vs. The Climate," the film presents powerful portraits of communities on the front lines of climate change—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.

With director Avi Lewis and author Naomi Klein in attendance for a post-film Q&A.
