This Changes Everything

Avi Lewis 2015

Filmed 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.
Directed by Avi Lewis, and inspired by Naomi Klein’s international non-fiction bestseller of the same name, 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.


  • Variety
    "Offering hope by indicating the power of game-changing grassroots activism"
  • Globe & Mail
    "The realization that a solution is possible, well, that changes everything"
  • The New York Times
    "Unsurprisingly I spent the film crying"
  • YES Magazine
    “Klein and Lewis paint a picture of a post-fossil-fueled, post-capitalist future that seems not only within reach, but like a place where we actually want to live”
  • LA Times
    “Klein and those impassioned protesters provide something that has been in short supply in the predecessors — namely, a modicum of hope for the future”
