- film showing at The Beehive Honiton Tuesday 24th Nov 8.00pm
Tickets: £5 from the Beehive, Honiton
This Changes Everything is the climate change film of the moment, providing a back drop to this month’s international talks in Paris. This film sets the scene for the decisions that will define the world that our children will live in, telling us what the politicians don’t!
Unlike many works about the climate crisis, this is not a film that tries to scare the audience into action: it aims to empower, leaving you refreshed and inspired, reflecting on the ties between us, the kind of lives we really want, and why the climate crisis is at the centre of it all.
Tickets available from http://www.beehivehoniton.co.uk/beehive-events/
Everyone is invited to stay after the film to engage in a community discussion in The Beehive bar. Hosted by the Blackdown Hills Transition Group.

A film by Avi Lewis, narrated and inspired by the international bestseller book by Naomi Klein
What if confronting the climate crisis is the best chance we’ll ever get to build a better world?
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.
This 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.
Unlike many works about the climate crisis, this is not a film that tries to scare the audience into action: it aims to empower. Provocative, compelling, and accessible to even the most climate-fatigued viewers, This Changes Everything will leave you refreshed and inspired, reflecting on the ties between us, the kind of lives we really want, and why the climate crisis is at the centre of it all.
Will this film change everything? Absolutely not. But you could, by answering its call to action.
Everyone is invited to stay after the film to engage in a community discussion in The Beehive bar.
Contains adult themes and scenes of brutality.

Futures Forum: Climate change: "The very idea that we - as atomized individuals - could play a significant part in stabilizing the planet’s climate is objectively nuts."
Futures Forum: Energy revolution: “There is growing evidence that some fundamental changes are coming that will over time put a question mark over investments in old energy systems.”
Futures Forum: Climate change: "a badge of political identity in a debate riven by ideological and tribal conflicts"

Futures Forum: Climate change: appealing to values and identity >>> From 'worthy but dull' to re-framing the debate >>> It's about: pollution >>> inter-generational debt >>> conserving the local landscape
