Inspired by Naomi Klein’s book, This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs the Climate, this film presents seven powerful portraits of communities on the front lines of the climate crisis and Klein contends that “we can seize the existential crisis of climate change to transform our failed economic system into something radically better.” More information about the film can be seen here: http://thefilm.thischangeseverything.org/about/
