In How to Let Go of the World and Love All the Things Climate Can’t Change, Oscar Nominated director Josh Fox (Gasland) continues in his deeply personal style, investigating climate change– the greatest threat our world has ever known. Traveling to 12 countries on six continents, the film acknowledges that it may be too late to stop some of the worst consequences and asks, what is it that climate change can’t destroy? What is so deep within us that no calamity can take it away?
Academy Award nominated Documentarian Josh Fox premiered How to Let Go at the Sundance Film Festival in 2016. How to Let Go was awarded the 2016 Documentary Award for Environmental Advocacy and has been invited to screen at the Telluride Mountain Festival, DC Environmental Festival, Cleveland International, Princeton Environmental Film Festival, Environmental Film Festival at Yale, Hot Docs, among many others.
Dozens of grassroots groups across the country have requested to bring the film through their communities. The film is about the power that local communities have in determining their own climate and energy solutions democratically. More than just a film, How to Let Go is intended to be a launchpad for education and action in communities. Community screenings such as this will help communities lead a renewable energy revolution, one community at a time.
