Meet the 2015 Sundance Filmmakers #78: 'How To Change The World' Explores the Early Days Of Greenpeace

When you hear the word "Greenpeace," you probably think of bright young post-grads in neon vests, standing outside your local Whole Foods, clipboard in hand, asking if you have a minute to talk about the environment.

Since its inception in 2007, Impact Partners has been involved in the financing of over 50 films, including award-winning documentaries such as "The Cove," "An Inconvenient Truth," "The Garden," "Hell and Back Again," How to Survive a Plague" and many more. These films have not only been critical successes but have also succeeded in changing public opinion. This year, six films supported by the company will be screening at Sundance: "Sembene!," "How to Change the World",  "Dreamcatcher," "Chuck Norris vs. Communism," "Censored Voices" and "The Hunting Ground." "Impact Partners was a key piece in the puzzle of putting ‘Chuck Norris vs. Communism’ together," said John Battsek, managing director of Passion Pictures and an executive producer on the film. "Companies like Impact are invaluable when it comes to social issue documentaries." Cogan's »
