Join London divestment groups, Friends of the Earth and Fossil Free SOAS for a screening THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING. Introducing the documentary will be various London divestment groups who will provide a brief introdction to the topic that is becoming, arguably, the most powerful tool the environmental movement has ever had. With the Paris climate summit looming, now is the perfect time to get involved in the growing campaign to persuade London's councils to divest.
Directed by Avi Lewis, and inspired by Naomi Klein’s international bestseller, 'This Changes Everything' presents seven powerful portraits of communities on the front lines in the battle against climate change. Interwoven with these stories of struggle is Klein’s narration, connecting the carbon in the air with the economic system that put it there.
Filmed over 211 days, nine countries, five continents and four years, it is an epic attempt to re-imagine the vast challenge of climate change. The film aims to empower people to act against climate change by encouraging them to join together.
The film will be preceded by an introduction from some of the London divestment groups, and will start at 8pm.
