Film ‘This Changes Everything’ aims to inspire those on the front lines

The Cowichan Valley Branch of the Council of Canadians is screening a new film inspired by Naomi Klein’s This Changes Everything

The Cowichan Valley Branch of the Council of Canadians is screening a new film inspired by Naomi Klein’s international non-fiction bestseller This Changes Everything on Nov. 8.

The film of the same name presents seven portraits of communities “on the front lines” from Montana’s Powder River basin to the Alberta tar sands, the coast of South India and Beijing.

“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,” says a press release for the event. “The film is intended to be a useful organizing tool for people on the front lines battling for social and climate justice. It will leave you refreshed and inspired.”

The film will start at 2 p.m. at the Heritage Hall of the Island Savings Centre in Duncan. Entry is by donation. For more information contact Donna Cameron at 250-748-2444 or dcameron@seaside.net
