  • Naomi Klein's "This Changes Everything" - Spring Creek Project
    Lecture
    Construction and Engineering Hall
    Thu, 02/25/2016 - 6:30pm - 9:00pm

    Filmed over 211 shoot days in nine countries and five continents over four years, This Changes Everything is an epic attempt to re-imagine the vast challenge of climate change. 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, 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. 

    We'll be joined by one the film's principal subjects, Crystal Lameman, Treaty Coordinator & Communications Manager for the Beaver Lake Cree Nation, Alberta, CA.
