Storyline

What if confronting the climate crisis is the best chance we'll ever get to build a better world? 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. The film presents seven 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 Naomi 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.

User Reviews

 
Skip to the last part of this movie about Germany. That's the positive part about how to succesfully make a change. The rest is doom and gloom. Bummer.
17 November 2019 | by imseegSee all my reviews

This movie changes NOTHING, because it's too much doom and gloom, with only few positive solutions offered. My advice:skip immediately to the last part of this movie about Germany, so you can experience first hand the positive alternatives that are IN ACTION RIGHT NOW in the biggest economy of Europe, Germany.

Unfortunately the rest of this movie is rather depressing and longwinding and will probably only bore and depress people. Please do try and watch it though, because this documentary is intelligently told and full of wisdom, but it's too timid, slowburning and depressing in character.

Everybody knows about the many disasters waiting to happen IF we dont change anything. I wanna hear new positive solutions that we can do NOW on this very day OURSELVES. Therefore this movie is a bit of a missed opportunity, because there is too little focus on what we as oridinary people can do right now, besides protesting...
