Join a "This Changes Everything" screening near you!

There may be one coming up close to where you live very soon. I just got this notice from 350.org, and the screening is this Tues pm, Oct 20th. Not much notice, but maybe some of you might having more time to plan for it? They want people going out to theaters to see it....let the world know in ticket sales that people give a damn. (Its only 5 bucks at my local theater.)

But you can also watch it online starting October 20th, it will be available on iTunes.

Here's a map of the US, just enter your zip to find out if it will be in a theater near you~

It looks REALLY good~



Synopsis:

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 Kleinís international non-fiction bestseller This Changes Everything, the film presents seven powerful portraits of communities on the front lines, from Montanaís 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 Kleinís 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'm so grateful that creative, motivated people put this film together. Even if it sucks (it won't tho!), it will get more heads out of the sand & wake more people up to what is at stake here. And what is possible.

Here's a talk by Naomi Klein on the subject~



It goes without saying, we are all grateful to her!!! (or we should be)
