Climate change documentary screened

For Immediate Release:  April 11, 2016

BLOOMSBURG — A film series focusing on “green awareness” concludes at Bloomsburg University with the documentary, “This Changes Everything,” on Thursday, April 21, at 7 p.m. in Carver Hall, Kenneth S. Gross Auditorium.

“This Changes Everything” is an attempt to re-imagine the challenge of climate change. Inspired by Naomi Klein’s international non-fiction bestseller of the same name, the film presents seven portraits of communities from the everyday perspective.

Alongside these stories is Klein’s narration, connecting the carbon in the air with the economic system that put it there. Throughout this film, Klein builds to the idea that society can grasp the concept of climate change to transform our economic system.

This event is open to the public and sponsored by the Green Campus Initiative.
