How to Let Go of the World

Winner of Documentary Award for Environmental Advocacy!

After making his name as an inexhaustible anti-fracking advocate, Josh Fox (Gaslandexpands his reporting to a global scale, tracking responses to climate change across six continents. Filtering these issues through his own memories and impressions, Fox seeks answers to the underlying questions posed by global warming: what’s already beyond saving, and what’s so fundamental to human society that no calamity can take it away? His interviewees – from U.S. policy experts to indigenous activists in Ecuador to a Samoan council of elders – respond in ways that move and surprise him. 


Directed by Josh Fox. Produced by Deia Schlosberg. Edited by Annukka Lilja and Greg King.
