The CLIMATE CRISIS FILM FESTIVAL is closing its third day with THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING (Avi Lewis, 2015), asking us what if confronting the climate crisis is the best chance we’ll ever get to build a better world?
Having witnessed Naomi Klein’s documentation of ‘Blockadia’, we have an apt following up to the movie with a guest speaker from EXTINCTION REBELLION, who will be speaking about direct action, climate change, heading for extinction and what to do about it.
THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING is part of A WEB OF CONNECTIONS double bill, together with our GUEST SPEAKER and THE AGE OF CONSEQUENCES. These two thought-provoking documentaries highlight how the climate breakdown won’t only affect the nature around us, but also the nature of our relationships with one another. The poorest in the world will be the first hit by a crisis they had no responsibility in creating — it’s an ethical dilemma for the West, but also a major issue for global security.
***You can buy tickets for this individual film or SAVE £3 when purchasing tickets for the whole double bill.***
THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING is based on the movement-defining book THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING: CAPITALISM VS. THE CLIMATE by Naomi Klein. The story builds to a provocative and exciting idea: that we can seize the existential crisis of climate change to transform the failed system of consumer capitalism into something radically better.
THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING will leave you reflecting on the socio-political system we live in, the kind of lives we really want, and why the climate crisis is at the centre of it all.
“If you care about justice you must see this.” — Kumi Naidoo, Former Director at Greenpeace
“Naomi Klein applies her fine, fierce, and meticulous mind to the greatest, most urgent questions of our times. Her work has changed the terms of the debate. I count her among the most inspirational political thinkers in the world today.” — Arundhati Roy, author of Capitalism: A Ghost Story
“Klein and Lewis paint a picture of a post-fossil-fuelled, post-capitalist future that seems not only within reach, but like a place where we actually want to live.” – YES Magazine
