This Changes Everything is the movie inspired by Naomi Klein’s book of the same name. This epic film attempts to reimagine the vast challenge of climate change with seven portraits of communities struggling with the global issue, from Montana’s Powder River Basin to the Alberta Tar Sands and from the coast of South India to Beijing and beyond. Through narration, Klein posits an exciting idea: that we can seize the crisis of climate change to transform the current economic system into something radically better. The post-screening discussion will be led by Mike Weilbacher, Executive Director of the Schuylkill Center for Environmental Education.
