How to Change the World
109 mins | UK / Canada | 2015
Directed by Jerry Rothwell
In 1971, a group of friends sail into a nuclear test zone and their protest captures the world’s imagination, giving birth to Greenpeace and defining the modern green movement.
Media savvy from the beginning, these pioneers captured their seat-of-their pants activist adventures on 16mm film. From this vivid archive and sly narration by Robert Hunter, an early guiding force of the organization, Jerry Rothwell has created a thrilling, sometimes terrifying film.
When youthful energy comes up against the complexities of a growing organisation, and idealism meets compromise, the group find their battle to save the planet forces them also to fight each other.
Followed by Q&A with community respondents
