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

Filmed on five continents over the course of 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 bestseller This 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, which connects 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.

The screening will be followed by a panel discussion with Ken Hiltner (Professor, English and Environmental Studies and Director, Environmental Humanities Initiative at UCSB), John Foran (Professor, Socioloy and Environmental Studies at UCSB), Theo Lequesne, and Emily Williams.

Sponsored by the Environmental Humanities Initiative, the Carsey-Wolf Center, the College of Letters & Science, and the Department of Sociology.
