New England Friends of the Green Left Weekly and Progressive Cinema present 'This Changes Everything' at the Uniting Church Hall. Inspired by Naomi Klein’s international non-fiction bestseller ‘This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs the Climate’, the film presents seven powerful portraits of communities on the front lines, from Montana’s Powder River Basin to the Alberta Tar Sands, from the coast of South India to Beijing and beyond. Interwoven with these stories of struggle is Klein’s narration, connecting the carbon in the air with the economic system that put it there.

Among other things, he will focus attention on the relationship between Russia and Ukraine in Tsarist times; on Ukraine during the revolution and civil war of 1917-21; and on Ukraine during the 1930s and WWII.
