How To Change The World
Filmfest 2015

In 1971, a group of friends sail a boat into a nuclear test zone, and their protest captures the world's imagination. HOW TO CHANGE THE WORLD is a hippie heist movie, the story of the pioneers who founded Greenpeace and defined the modern green movement, using rare archival footage that brings their extraordinary world to life.

"At a time when we need to engage with problems on a global scale, hopefully this
story of one small group of people can get us thinking not only about how we act individually but in partnership with each other."
Jerry Rothwell

"Fear is a constant companion when filmmaking, in my experience. I've learned to welcome it, as a sign that I'm pushing my own boundaries a bit, not retreating into the easiest option. The absence of that nagging background anxiety is a sign I may have settled for less than I should have."
Jerry Rothwell in an interview with Filmmaker Magazine
