Film Screening: This Changes Everything @ Leadership Auditorium

Film Screening: This Changes Everything @ Leadership Auditorium

The ELO will be hosting a free screening on March 10, 2016 at 7pm in Leadership Auditorium. Stay after for great discussion!

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.
