What if confronting the climate crisis is the best chance we’ll ever get to build a better world?

 

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

 

Join Rutgers Amnesty International, along with Rutgers Students for Environmental Awareness, the Journalism & Media Studies Department, and the Central Jersey Climate Coalition as we screen this incredibly powerful film. We'll be joined by Avi Lewis for a brief Q&A at the conclusion of the screening.
