What if confronting the climate crisis is the best chance we’ll ever get to build a better world?
Filmed over 211 shoot days 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.
Directed by Avi Lewis, and 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.
"I’ve spent six years wandering through the wreckage caused by the carbon in the air, and the economic system that put it there.” - Naomi Klein
"People are starting to realize that this is no longer an Indian problem, and that's the good thing, because they're starting to realize that if you drink water and you breathe air, this is about you.” - CRYSTAL LAMEMAN, Beaver Lake Cree Nation
"When you see communities who are thrown into the front line They become stronger. They stand up. And you’re like, isn't this incredible? Isn't this the society we want?” ASAD REHMAN, Friends of the Earth
