This Changes Everything presents seven portraits from communities across the globe in an attempt to re-imagine the vast challenge of addressing climate change. From Montana's Powder River Basin to the Alberta Tar Sands, from the coast of South India to Beijing and beyond, the film ties together stories that highlight the connection of the pollution that is changing the climate with the economic system that put it there. Author Naomi Klein builds the basis to argue that we could seize the existential crisis of climate change to transform the failed economic system of capitalism into something better. Nothing short of an ecological revolution will be required. Will this film change everything? Absolutely not. But you could, by answering its call to action.
This short video explores how the online world has overwhelmingly become the popular outlet for public rage by briefly illustrating some of the many stories of everyday people which have suddenly become public enemy number one under the most misunderstood of circumstances and trivial narratives. With the web acting like a giant echo-chamber, amplifying false stories and feeding on the pent-up aggression of the audience watching the spectacle, The Outrage Machine shows how these systems froth the mob mentality into a hideous mess, as a good example of where the spectacle goes and how its intensity has to keep ratcheting up in order maintain the audience attention, in a culture of dwindling attention spans, distraction and triviality.
