Opening Night: How to Change the World
How to Change the World
UK, 2015, 110 minutes

Director: Jerry Rothwell

How to Change the World, California Premiere

How to Change the World chronicles the birth of the most significant environmental protest movement in history perpetrated by the wildest bunch of hippie eco-freaks the world has ever seen. Greenpeace founders knew the power of images and that media attention was crucial, so they recorded everything: A goldmine of 16 mm footage reveals the danger, bickering, privation and just plain weirdness that accompanied their journey from a rag-tag collection of draft dodgers, spiritual seekers and journalists to the global environmental movement that transcends Greenpeace today.

Director Jerry Rothwell and editor Jim Scott masterfully blend this archive with current day interviews to tell the story of the beginning of the worldwide green movement. Hear Brigitte Bardot sing for the baby seals. See the crew consult the i-Ching to determine their next step. Watch as the critical piece of whale harpooning footage is captured at great risk. Contemporary interviews with the founding members provides insight and depth to this history, accompanied by a groovin' sound track of Joni Mitchell, Canned Heat and more.

Following the film, we will remain at the Sebastopol Center for the Arts for our Opening Night Party where audience and visiting filmmakers from around the world kick-off SDFF weekend filled with films, events, and special programs.
