December’s Film: How to Let Go of the World and Love all the Things Climate Can’t Change (2016, 127 minutes)

While many of us are aware of the immense consequences of climate change this film asks, “What is it that climate change cannot destroy? What is so deep within us that no calamity can take it away?” A Sundance Film review by Ben Kenigsberg described the film as, “An environmental documentary that consists of roughly one-third doom-and-gloom to two-thirds wide-eyed optimism.”

In the quest to answer these vastly spiritual questions Oscar-nominated director Josh Fox (Gasland), travels to twelve countries on six continents, collecting tokens of hope and resiliency in the chaos of climate change.

This film is longer then our typical Movies that Matter films, but the unique, spiritual message on Climate Change is worthy for viewing.

About the Movies that Matter Series: The film is part of the UUFDC’s monthly Movies That Matter series examining a wide range of issues. Each free screening is followed by a discussion. The series invites consciousness and intellectual inquiry, which is philosophically in tune with Unitarian Universalists beliefs. The UUFDC Fellowship is located at 10341 Hwy. 42 in north Ephraim.
