Series on Global Citizen Action to Save the Planet
presents the award-winning documentary:
"HOW TO LET GO OF THE WORLD AND LOVE ALL THE THINGS CLIMATE CAN'T CHANGE!"
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. Traveling 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?
"This is a brave film that pulls no punches in exploring the impacts of climate change on human society. Combining a personal perspective with a global survey of community responses to the challenge, it is simultaneously a tragedy about climate change and a celebration of human potential. Like the director, you may find yourself both crying and dancing!" -- Professor Susan Clayton, College of Wooster.
"Excellent...Puts a human face on the consequences of climate change... Maintains optimism by focusing on the human spirit and courage of those willing to take action." -- Professor Paul Mohai, University of Michigan.
