FilmBuff and Abramorama are have announced their plans for a global release for “This Changes Everything,” directed by Avi Lewis. The documentary is based on the book of the same name, written by Naomi Klein. The release is now open exclusively on iTunes and is available in more than 80 countries. A series of screenings have also been scheduled around the country. The film has a global message to find a solution to the climate change crisis by mobilizing worldwide communities.
“The support from the global community for this film has been nothing short of inspiring from the outset,” said Janet Brown, FilmBuff’s CEO. “Since its release, the trailer has been translated by volunteers in 45 different languages, and the feature film has crowd sourced subtitles in multiple languages including Czech, Basque and Filipino. Interest is continuing to grow and we are fielding hundred of requests from around the world for grassroots screenings weekly.”
FilmBuff is in charge of the international sales and distribution of the film, including the domestic digital release and handling all international community and grassroots screenings. Abramorama is responsible for U.S. theatrical and today’s event screenings in theaters across the country, including collaborating closely with the filmmakers and FilmBuff on the global roll-out strategy.
The official film 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.”
“This Changes Everything” is watchable on iTunes right now at iTunes.com/ThisChangesEverything.
