Climate Revolution

April 27, 2017

On April 27th, five days after Earth Day, join Reel Causes as we explore the #ClimateRevolution. We will watch the documentary How to Let Go of the World and Love All The Things Climate Can’t Change from Oscar-nominated director Josh Fox; and learn about environmental issues in British Columbia from our community cause Ecojustice. Following the film there will be a Q&A with Harry Wruck (Ecojustice lawyer), Paula Williams (Communities and Coal) and Kevin Washbrook (Voters Taking Action on Climate Change), moderated by Peter McCartney (Wilderness Committee.) Together, let’s explore climate change: the greatest threat our world has ever known.

How to Let Go of the World and Love All the Things Climate Can’t Change

April 27, 2017,
Doors: 6:00 PM, Show Time: 6:30 PM

Running time: 127 minutes

In How to Let Go of the World and Love All The Things Climate Can’t Change, Oscar-nominated director Josh Fox (Gasland) continues in his deeply personal style, investigating climate change – the greatest threat our world has ever known. Travelling to 12 countries on 6 continents, the film acknowledges that it may be too late to stop some of the worst consequences and asks, what is it that climate change can’t destroy? What is so deep within us that no calamity can take it away?

Josh Fox is best known as the Oscar-nominated, Emmy-winning writer/director of Gasland. He is internationally recognized as a spokeperson and leader on the issue of fracking and extreme energy development. His new film How to Let Go of the World and Love All the Things Climate Can’t Change premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in 2016.

Variety called the film “an environmental documentary that consists of roughly one-third doom-and-gloom to two-thirds wide-eyed optimism.”

Ecojustice

Ecojustice uses the law to protect nature, combat climate change, and fight for a healthy environment for all. It is Canada’s largest environmental law charity.

Ecojustice’s origins lie in the wake of the 1989 Exxon Valdez disaster. While environmentalists in the United States were already successfully using the courts to force governments and corporations to protect the environment, environmental law was still a novel concept here at home. Canada needed an independent organization that could go to court to stand up for people and the planet. With that in mind, Ecojustice opened its doors in Vancouver in 1990.

Since then, Ecojustice has worked with community groups and individuals across Canada to build the case for a better earth. Together, Ecojustice and their clients have won precedent-setting legal victories that have saved old-growth forests, protected communities from harmful pesticides, and shut the door on bad projects that put climate and the environment at risk.
