12 countries. 6 continents. Needed: resilience, innovation, democracy, and community to weather the climate change storm

Oscar-nominated director Josh Fox investigates climate change – the greatest threat our world has ever known – in a style that is deeply personal and moving. Travelling to 12 countries on 6 continents, the film surveys oil spills deep in the Amazon rainforest, finds solar power in Ecuadorian and Zambian communities, joins Pacific Islanders in a canoe flotilla protesting against a coal tanker, and explores the effects of chronic smog in Beijing – a city of 20 million people where no one dares to open a window. This film asks us: What is so deep within us that no calamity can take it away?
