This Changes Everything

This Changes Everything

Tuesday, Oct. 11, and Wednesday, Oct. 12, 2016
89 minutes
Film starts at 7 p.m. in Sweigart Auditorium (115) and will be followed by a brief discussion.

Based on Naomi Klein’s bestseller, this 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. 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.

Forks Over Knives

Forks Over Knives

Tuesday, Dec. 6, and Wednesday, Dec. 7, 2016
96 minutes
Film starts at 7 p.m. in Sweigart Auditorium (115) and will be followed by a brief discussion.

Forks Over Knives examines the profound claim that most, if not all, of the degenerative diseases that afflict us can be controlled, or even reversed, by rejecting our present menu of animal-based and processed foods. The film traces the personal journeys of a pair of pioneering researchers, Dr. T. Colin Campbell and Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn. The idea of food as medicine is put to the test. Throughout the film, cameras follow “reality patients” who have chronic conditions from heart disease to diabetes. Doctors teach these patients how to adopt a whole-food, plant-based diet as the primary approach to treating their ailments—while the challenges and triumphs of their journeys are revealed.
