How to Let Go of the World and Love All the Things Climate Can’t Change

#ClimateRevolution Film Explores Community Values

On September 26 and 27, three regional, climate change-concerned groups are hosting public screenings and discussions of How to Let Go of the World and Love All the Things Climate Can’t Change.  In his deeply personal style, the Oscar-nominated director of Gasland, Josh Fox, continues to investigate climate change – one of the greatest threats our planet has experienced.  Humanity is facing a difficult period of change; this film explores the values needed to wisely navigate this transition.

Traveling to twelve countries on six continents to witness communities on the frontlines of climate change and to glean insights from dozens of climate heroes featured in this movie, the filmmakers acknowledge that it may be too late to stop some of the worst climate consequences.  Throughout its two hours, the documentary that premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January 2016 asks, “What is it that climate change can’t destroy?  What is so deep within us that no calamity can take it away?”

Co-hosts 350Sandpoint, Palouse Environmental Sustainability Coalition (PESC), and Wild Idaho Rising Tide (WIRT) welcome everyone at these events offering free admission and accepting donations at the door and at group information tables in the lobby.  Screenings start at 7 pm on Monday, September 26, at the Kenworthy Performing Arts Centre, 508 South Main Street in Moscow, and at 7 pm on Tuesday, September 27, at the Little Panida Theater, 300 North First Avenue in Sandpoint.  Conversation after the film will explore audience member reactions, renewable energy transition and climate change challenges in Idaho communities, and local and Northwest participatory movements seeking climate justice and solutions.
