November Movie Night – This Changes Everything

“What if confronting the climate crisis is the best chance we’ll ever get to build a better world?

Movie poster
Filmed over 211 shoot days in nine countries and five continents over four years, This Changes Everything is an epic attempt to re-imagine the vast challenge of climate change.”


“The film presents seven 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 Naomi 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.”
IMDB score 7.2/10.

About Gerard

Picture of architect Gerard Siero

“Gerard Siero is an ecological architect with 43 years industry experience, on projects ranging from ecological planning to public buildings, schools and housing, emphasising ecological design for sustainability, economy, life and delight, in thoughtful architecture integrated with landscape.  His practice has been based in Perth since 1985. Gérard continues to educate on and explore sustainable, climate-responsive architecture, construction, planning and landscape, with an ecological perspective.

Architecture celebrates humanity and life – “Design with nature, design for Life”.  Sites and clients are unique.  The aim is to create a place that reflects genius loci and the inhabitants, and harmonises the opportunities and challenges of the project towards creating something life giving, functional and beautiful.

In studying the ecological and social crises we now face: climate, habitat and biodiversity losses, rather than disaster, Gerard sees ours as a time of amazing opportunity, of reconnection, relationship, equity, justice and wholeness … transforming our society and economy into life-giving relationships with the Earth and each other!”
