Review: 'How To Change The World' looks at the birth of Greenpeace with some stumbles

23 January 2015 2:05 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

There are good ideas aplenty in Jerry Rothwell's "How To Change The World," which earned an Opening Night slot at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival and will be part of the World Documentary Competition. Although its heroes are the founders of Greenpeace and pioneers of the modern environmental movement, "How To Change The World" isn't a blindly unquestioning piece of hero-worship.

The result will be a natural for educational and nature-oriented broadcast networks.

Hunter was a Vancouver Sun reporter whose intense interest in environmental issues landed him at the crux of an original group that reflected the city’s early Me Decade status as an equal-opportunity mecca for American draft dodgers, fishermen, spiritual seekers and more anarchistic counterculturalists. “Greenpeace” was more a coinage for a banner than anything else at first, as a loose consortium of activists planned a disruption of President Nixon’s planned five-megaton nuclear explosion »
