August Climate Movie Circle: “To the End”
The Climate Movie Circle is proud to present our August film selection (postponed from July), “To the End.” This FREE screening will be held via online streaming link to be viewed at your leisure before our online Zoom discussion to be held Sunday, August 13, from 3:00pm to 4:00pm. This is a change in screening method and discussion venue!
To the End captures the emergence of a new generation of leaders and the movement behind the most sweeping climate change legislation in U.S. history. The award-winning team behind Knock Down the House follows four exceptional young women— Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, activist Varshini Prakash, climate policy writer Rhiana Gunn-Wright, and political strategist Alexandra Rojas— as they grapple with new challenges of leadership and power and work together to defend their generation’s right to a future. From street protests to the halls of Congress, these bold leaders fight to shift the narrative around climate, revealing the crisis as an opportunity to build a better society. Including up-to-the-minute footage that culminates in 2022’s landmark climate bill, To the End lifts the veil on the battle for the future of our world, and gives audiences a front seat view of history in the making.
