This Changes Everything


Avi Lewis / Canada, USA / 2015 / 89 mins / English, Greek, Telugu, Mandarin, Cree with English subtitles / Documentary

“Klein and those impassioned protesters provide something that has been in short supply— namely, a modicum of hope for the future” – LA Times.


Directed by journalist and filmmaker Avi Lewis and produced in conjunction with Naomi Klein’s best-selling book of the same name, This Changes Everything is an epic attempt to reimagine the vast challenge of climate change. Filmed over four years, the film presents several powerful portraits of communities on the front lines of climate activism, travelling from the Alberta Tar Sands to the coast of South India, Beijing and beyond. This Changes Everything argues that the greatest crisis we have ever faced also offers us the opportunity to correct and address the economic and political systems which have created it.
