This Changes Everything

This Changes Everything, a 2015 documentary based on Naomi Klein’s best-seller of the same name, looks at how Climate Change is the prime global existential threat and how our response can be a unifying force for something better.

The film is composed of footage shot in five continents, including Montana’s Powder River Basin, the Alberta Tar Sands, the coast of South India, the heart of Beijing and beyond.

The event starts at 7:00 PM and will be both in-person at the Cafe and online via Zoom. Zoom registration is required at
