This Changes Everything

Saturday 27th February 10:00 AM - Theatre By The Lake
This Changes Everything
Director:Avi Lewis
Cert:PG Year: 2014 Length:89mins
Country:Denmark
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, 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.

Unlike many works about the climate crisis, this is not a film that tries to scare the audience into action: it aims to empower. This Changes Everything will leave you refreshed and inspired, reflecting on the ties between us, the kind of lives we really want, and why the climate crisis is at the centre of it all.

This event will be followed by a Q&A with Hazel Graham, Cumbria Action for Sustainability
