An unsettling but ultimately encouraging documentary about global warming and grassroots activism.

Variety

Inspired by Naomi Klein’s international non-fiction bestseller, filmed over 211 shoot days in nine countries and five continents over four years this epic documentary attempts to re-imagine the vast challenge of climate change.

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 is Klein’s own 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.

This screening will feature an introduction from Peter Thomson, a former Lord Mayor of Newcastle who, during his year of office, promoted a series of events and debates focusing on Agenda 21; the agenda for change arising from the Rio Earth Summit of 1992.  He is now an active member of the Green Party in the city.
