05_naomi_klein_in_ny-1024x677Filmed over 211 shoot days in nine countries and five continents over four years the documentary This Changes Everything is described as “an epic attempt to re-imagine the vast challenge of climate change.”

Inspired by Naomi Klein’s international non-fiction bestseller of the same name, the film presents seven powerful portraits of communities believed to be on the front lines of climate change.  The film takes viewers from Montana’s Powder River Basin to the Alberta Tar Sands, from the coast of South India to Beijing and beyond.

The film was screened at Toronto International Film Festival in 2015 where it was awarded the 2nd place People’s Choice Award.  You can watch it on the main CBC Network on Friday February 18th.  Check your local listings.

“Traveling around the world with the book in the last year, I’m finding audiences hungry for bold, visionary responses, far beyond the cautious policy tweaks offered by political leaders. The real leadership is coming from the streets, from communities: we’re honored to tell these stories and bring these voices to a wider audience.” – Naomi Klein

“The urgency is palpable.  I’m beginning to think ‘climate fatigue’ is a condition that just afflicts journalists! We’re delighted to have assembled a team of industry veterans who are ready to break all the rules and answer the call of this historic moment with an inspiring and hopeful message. Are we just preaching to the choir? Sure…if by ‘choir’ you mean the whole human race.” — Director Avi Lewis
