Event Description

What if confronting the climate crisis is the best chance we’ll ever get to build a better world? Come help Sydney Peace Foundation kick off the 2016 Sydney Peace Prize week with a screening of 2016 Sydney Peace Prize recipient Naomi Klein's film This Changes Everything!

After the screening, attendees will have the opportunity to engage with the film's Director and Naomi's partner in crime, Avi Lewis, in a Q and A session. If you haven't already seen this inspiring film, bring your curiosity and your questions and come along for an informative and inspirational afternoon!

Filmed over 211 shoot days in nine countries and five continents over four years, This Changes Everything is an epic attempt to re-imagine the vast challenge of climate change.

Directed by Avi Lewis, and inspired by Naomi Klein’s international non-fiction bestsellerThis 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.

This film will be screened at the New Law Lecture Theatre at the University of Sydney.
