What if confronting the climate crisis is the best chance we’ll ever get to build a better world? This Changes Everything is an epic attempt to re-imagine the vast challenge of climate change.
Directed by Avi Lewis, and inspired by Naomi Klein’s international non-fiction bestseller This Changes Everything, the film presents seven powerful portraits of communities on the front lines. Interwoven with these stories of struggle is Klein’s narration, connecting the carbon in the air with the economic system that put it there. Throughout the film, Klein builds to her most controversial and exciting idea: that we can seize the existential crisis of climate change to transform our failed economic system into something radically better.
The lower floor venue of Studio-X Istanbul was turned into a semi-transparent audience and experience space for the screenings of “This Will Change Everything” documentary.
The brutal and edgy plasticity of the space was cracked with angular lines and surfaces, to fulfill the context that lies behind the documentary itself. Materials that were used during the installation were gathered from the walking distance neighbourhood of Karaköy. The industrial feeling of both the documentary and Karaköy were interwined throught the design.
