This Changes Everything“ will show on Sunday, December 6, at the Rossland Miners Hall.  Come at 7:00 pm.    There will be sock puppets! 

Based on Naomi Klein’s bestselling book  by the same title, the film This Changes Everything is an epic attempt to re-imagine the vast challenge of climate change.  Shot over 211 days in nine countries and five continents over four years, 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. 

With a goal to empower, this film is not about scaring you into action.  Klein’s narration builds up to her exciting idea that we can seize the existential crisis of climate change to transform the current economic system into something radically better. 

Kicking off the evening is a pre-film presentation by Rachael Roussin and Aaron Cosbey: “Sock Puppets Talk Climate Change!”  In ten manic minutes Rachael, Aaron and their sock puppets will discuss: the Paris climate change talks, climate change skepticism, what we can do about climate change, and what the communities in the Columbia Basin, including the City of Rossland, are doing about it.

For those interested in continuing the climate change talks, please join us after the film for informal discussions in the Red Room Lounge at the Prestige Mountain Resort.

Entry by cash donation or a contribution of a non-perishable food item that will be donated to the Rossland Food Bank. 

Presented by the Rossland Sustainability Commission with the support of the Columbia Basin Trust and the City of Rossland.
