Abramorama and FilmBuff are joining forces for a global release campaign for Avi Lewis’ climate crisis documentary film, “This Changes Everything,” based on the critically acclaimed non-fiction bestseller by Naomi Klein. The film was shot in nine countries over the course of four years and boasts names like Alfonso Cuarón, Danny Glover, Seth MacFarlane and Shepard Fairey as executive producers. “This Changes Everything” will world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival.
The official synopsis reads: “‘This Changes Everything’ presents seven powerful portraits of communities on the front lines of both fossil fuel extraction and the climate crisis it is driving, 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. The film builds to its 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.”
FilmBuff is handling worldwide sales for the film and has presold all Canadian rights to Video Services Corp. (VSC). Abramorama and FilmBuff are set to launch the U.S. release in early October.
