Join the Center for Communication & Civic Engagement's Rethinking Prosperity for the screening of This Changes Everything! The documentary directed by Avi Lewis was developed in parallel to the critically acclaimed Naomi Klein worldwide bestseller with the same title. Both the movie and the book provide a brilliant explanation of why the climate crisis challenges us to abandon the core “free market” ideology of our time, restructure the global economy, and remake our political system.
ADVANCE REGISTRATION is required as space is limited. There is a suggested donation of $5.00 for students and $10.00 for all non-students. No one will be turned away for an inability to contribute.
This Changes Everything 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.
