Location: Kirkland, WA (click for map)

This Changes Everything is a different type of climate change documentary.  Based on Naomi Klein’s 2014 book with the same title, the film is not mainly about carbon but about capitalism and the political, economic, social and cultural norms that have dominated our lives in the past several decades.

This Changes Everything premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last September and is now being shown around the world.  The film is being promoted ahead of the U.N.’s COP21 climate meeting in Paris next month.  Portraits of seven communities are shown, all on the front lines of both fossil fuel extraction and the climate crisis it is driving.

Kirkland is one of several venues for the film in the Puget Sound area, which will be shown by Meaningful Movies groups in Seattle (5 locations), Edmonds, Woodinville and Renton in November, December and January.  All of the screenings will be accompanied by a community discussion with representatives from or the Sierra Club.

Co-sponsored by, League of Women Voters, Puget Sound Sage, Cool Mom, Sightline Institute, WA Environmental Council, The Sierra Club, Puget Sound Advocates for Retirement Action, The Alliance for Jobs and Clean Energy, Earth Ministry/Washington Interfaith Power & Light, Washington Democratic Environmental Caucus.
