How To Change The World
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."
"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."
