Filmed across five continents, this film, inspired by Naomi Klein’s international non-fiction bestseller of the same name, makes an epic attempt to re-imagine the vast challenge of climate change. It presents seven powerful portraits of communities on the front lines, from Alberta’s Tar Sands to the south coast of India, interwoven with Klein’s narration, connecting the carbon in the air with the economic system that put it there. Her controversial and exciting idea is that we can seize the existential crisis of climate change to transform our failed economic system into something radically better.
Directed and produced by Avi Lewis. Presented in partnership with Interfaith Power & Light (MD.DC.NoVA). Introduced by the Reverend Dr. Peter M. Antoci of St. Columba’s Church. Special Guests Brent Blackwelder, Alex Kragie, and Ray Suarez.
