7:30pm :: Opening Night Premiere

Oscar Nominated director Josh Fox (Gasland) continues in his deeply personal style, investigating climate change. Fox’s fight to protect his home from oil and gas companies, now leads him to the banks of the Amazon; to the island nations of Vanuatu and Samoa; and the choking air of China. At each stop asking: what is it that climate change can’t destroy? What values and creativity are so deep within us that no storm can take them away?

This is both a sobering reflection on the state of climate change and the perfect remedy for those with climate change fatigue: celebrating the creativity and resilience of our movement.
