2nd - How to Change the World - Bozeman Doc Series screening
On Thursday, April 2nd, the Bozeman Doc Series will present the Montana premiere of the Sundance award-winning documentary How to Change the World.
In 1971, a group of friends sail into a nuclear test zone, and their protest captures the world’s imagination. Using never before seen archival footage that brings their extraordinary world to life, How To Change The World is the story of the pioneers who founded Greenpeace and helped define the modern environmental movement.
The film spans the period from the first expedition through the first whale and seal campaigns, and ends in 1979, when, victims of their own success, the founders gave away their central role to create Greenpeace International. At its heart is Bob Hunter, a charismatic journalist who somehow managed to bind together the ‘mystics and the mechanics’ into a group with a single purpose, often at huge cost to himself. The story is framed by his first person narrative, drawn from his writings and journals about the group.
How To Change The World is an intimate portrait of the group’s original members and of activism itself—idealism vs. pragmatism, principle vs. compromise. They agreed that a handful of people could change the world; they just couldn’t always agree on how to do it.
Indiewire calls the film “A rousing history of Greenpeace,” and writes, “director Jerry Rothwell unearths extraordinary footage to tell a story about fighting for a cause…[Bob Hunter’s] evolution from bold activist to the leading voice in environmental preservation is an undeniably powerful evolution that emphasizes the message that anyone can alter global events with the right blend of passion and commitment.”
How to Change the World premiered as the opening night film at the Sundance Film Festival in January, 2015, where it was awarded the Special Jury Award for Editing.
Doors open at 6:30 PM, and the films begins at 7:00. Tickets are available at the door or before the show at Cactus Records and Movie Lovers. Tickets are also available online at www.bozemandocseries.org, where you can buy 7 film punch cards, learn more about the series, and view trailers for upcoming films.
