Sedona AZ (June 15, 2016) – On Thursday, June 23rd, at 6:00 PM, Inspiration of Sedona will present the free Arizona encore premiere of the award-winning How to Let Go of the World and Love All the Things Climate Can’t Change documentary, followed by an open community discussion. Back by popular demand, this screening is part of the film’s nation-wide “Let Go and Love Tour.”
In How to Let Go of the World and Love All the Things Climate Can’t Change, Academy Award-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?
How to Let Go of the World premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in 2016. The film was just 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.
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 of the World and Love All the Things Climate Can’t Change is intended to be a launch pad for education and action in communities. The ‘Let Go and Love Tour’ will help communities lead a renewable energy revolution, one community at a time.
Josh Fox is currently touring the film to 100 towns and cities in the U.S. and across the world that are cited as “Hot Spots” for fossil fuel infrastructure to engage with residents in protecting their lives and land from the encroaching gas industry.
With experts, artists, and concrete resources including toolkits, counterproposal support, and connections to investors to finance their counter-proposals, the “Let Go and Love Tour” will help communities lead a renewable energy revolution, one community at a time.
The Inspiration of Sedona meets on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of each month. It is an open meeting group, that strives to work together collectively for the betterment of ourselves, our communities, and the world. Its current format involves showing inspiring and personally empowering documentaries about the social and environmental issues we’re collectively facing, followed by interactive discussion.
