7pm – “How to let go of the world and love all the things climate can’t change”

Directed by Josh Foxx (Gasland)

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?

“A sprawling chronicle of despair – and hope…A fascinating, heartbreaking and ultimately inspiring ride…Highly engaging.”
Andrew O’Hehir, Salon
“How to Let Go says all the right things about an unnerving peril, and the various ways some highly motivated people are trying to combat it.”
Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times
“Highly entertaining, imaginative, and often emotional…A stylish cinematic tour de force.”
Ed Rampell, Sierra Club Magazine
“Fox has created a resource of hope in cataclysmic times…This film is highly recommended for educators of all types, especially middle school through college. It would serve as an excellent pedagogical device at conferences and special community events. Five stars!”
