Beacon Hill Meaningful Movies presents: “This Changes Everything” + A Discussion on Climate Justice

Jan 15, 2016 @ 7:00 pm

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. Inspired by Naomi Klein’s international non-fiction bestseller, This Changes Everything, 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.

“The stakes are too high for us not to make the absolute most of this moment.” – Naomi Klein

The purpose of these events is to bring meaningful awareness into our communities on how together we can build a carbon-free future for ourselves and our children.
This remarkable film is being shown in Nov through early Feb as a coordinated effort Meaningful Movies venues across the Puget Sound. This is in support of bringing meaningful awareness to what we can all do now to build a carbon-free future for ourselves and our children.
