This Changes Everything

October 20, 2015, 7:00 PM

What if confronting the climate crisis is the best chance we’ll ever get to build a better world? Inspired by Naomi Klein’s international bestseller of the same name, This Changes Everything is a stunning and shocking look at the real effects of capitalism on the environment as it follows seven 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 powerful portraits 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 support from executive producers Alfonso Cuaron, Danny Glover, Seth MacFarlane, Shepard Fairey, and Pamela Anderson, along with environmental and activist organizations, this one time theater event will be a night not to miss…and one that really might help change the world! (Unrated. 89 Min.)

Presented in partnership with the Colby College Center for the Arts & Humanities and Colby Environmental Studies Program.

A panel discussion will follow the film screening.
