'How to Let Go of the World and Love All the Things That Climate Can't Change"

Having exposed the risks posed by natural gas drilling (fracking) in the documentaries “Gasland” and “Gasland Part II,” Fox was struck by a sobering thought: “We could beat the fossil-fuel industry, but we still might lose everything we love to climate change.” This third film in the trilogy acknowledges that it may be too late to stop some of the worst consequences and asks, what is so deep within us that no calamity can take it away?

Travelling to 12 countries on six continents, Fox finds reasons for hope by showing how people around the world are taking action to protect their communities.

The screening in Gibsons will be at the Heritage Playhouse Monday October 10 at 7:30pm, and inSechelt at the SC Art Centre on October 13, at 7:30pm. Admission is by donation at the door (suggested $10).For more information go to greenfilms.ca.
