Awareness Film Night and Transition Sooke are presenting the recently released film “This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. The Climate” on January 13th followed by an engaging post-screening discussion that will focus on some things we all can change.
Filmed in 9 countries 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 best-seller of the same name, the film documents the emergence of a new climate movement.[sam id=”15″ codes=”true”]Klein, who narrates the film, sees the current climate and ecological crises as a gift – a potential catalyst for changing our relationship with nature and one another, for transforming our broken economic and cultural priorities and to heal long-festering historical wounds.
Post-screening discussion will focus on Lewis and Klein’s main themes in conversation with Transition Sooke’s Michael Tacon, Larissa Stendie with the Sierra Club and Glenys Verhulst from City Green Solutions (check the Awareness Film Night website below for updates on other panel members.) Moviegoers will be encouraged to create a list of ideas we all can implement for lowering our carbon footprints and disengaging thoughtfully from the capitalist system.
The evening will go from 7-9:30 in the Edward Milne Community School theatre, 6218 Sooke Rd. in Sooke. Admission is by donation.
Thanks to the District of Sooke for their funding support to cover the costs of the film and theatre rental.
