“[The film] expands, visualizes, and in many ways personalizes, the many themes of Naomi Klein’s book … explores the destructive path on which modern civilization treads while also connecting the dots between the various movements which constitute humanity’s best hope for continued survival and future prosperity.” – Common Dreams
Directed by Avi Lewis (AFI Festival award-winner The Take) and inspired by the New York Times-bestselling book by Naomi Klein, the feature documentary This Changes Everything will launch in 2015. The film brings Naomi Klein’s radical, inspiring thesis to life through a connective thread of stories from people living and working on the front lines of change.
This Changes Everything is an invitation to viewers to consider the seemingly impossible: that the changes the climate crisis demands of us may not be a punishment to fear, but a chance to rebuild our broken political and economic systems into alternatives that improve our quality of life, well-being and connectedness to one another.
The documentary was filmed over three years in the US, Canada, China, El Salvador, Greece, and India.
Images from the film are also featured in the book trailer for Naomi Klein’s This Changes Everything, and throughout this website.
