The Council of Canadians Quinte chapter screened the film ‘This Changes Everything’ at the Regent Theatre in Picton yesterday afternoon.
Picton is located about 200 kilometres east of Toronto.
Chapter activist Jessica Klein tells us, “The screening was wonderful. There were 115 people there. We had a table set up with material and spoke to people before and after the screening. We also met up with for a discussion with anyone who was interested after the screening to discuss the film. About 30 people met up at a nearby restaurant afterwards. There were individual conversations at each table.”
To date, more than 3,620 people have gone to chapter-organized screenings in Montreal, Saskatoon, Duncan, Elora, Charlottetown, Yellowknife, Prince Albert, Chilliwack, Ladner, Mabou, Windsor, Courtenay, Saint John, St. John’s, Sudbury, Golden, Terrace, Regina, Fredericton, Powell River, Thunder Bay, Hinton and now Picton.
As noted on the film’s website, “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. 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.”
