Win a Copy of Climate of Change

51-d46qGztL._SL500_AA300_ Climate of Change is a rich and inspiring documentary that takes us around the world to find the ordinary people taking action in the fight to save our environment. With beautiful narration written by British poet Simon Armitage and mellifluously voiced by Tilda Swinton (Chronicles of Narnia, I AM LOVE), the film seamlessly explores how teenagers in India, villagers in Papua New Guinea and Africa, self-described “hillbillies” in Appalachia and a PR expert in London are harnessing their global thinking to act locally within their respective communities.

 In what Variety calls “half eco-docu, half art…social-action cinema with a twist,” director Brian Hill and his cinematographers create a real sense of ambiance in each of the countries and communities they visit. Conversations with West Virginians are punctuated by footage of mountaintops surrounding their homes being dynamited; Papua New Guineans talk among the giant trees being decimated by commercial logging and a visit to the Global Seed Vault built in the Norwegian permafrost in Svalbard, Norway is nothing short of ethereal.

Watch the film instantly on Netflix or pick it up online. Leave us a comment about the trailer below and one of you will win your own copy care of New Video Group. (Be sure to enter your email address so we can contact you if you win!) We'll choose a winner next week - Feb. 10th.

Would love to have a copy!

Some great and shocking imagery. Sounds like it may be inspiring as well. I do sometimes get overwhelmed by the immensity of the problem and wonder if my own efforts can possibly be enough.

Wow..looks wonderful and would love to share it with the elementary school that I work at. Thanks for posting!!

Ooh I would love that book. I'm busy trying to educate my family about all this right now.

i am watching these type of films all the time.. trying to get my guy, friends and mom to live more enviromentally. They're smart and I need a good defense for their offense! Thanks.

This looks like a really good documentary, It's very important in todays society to educate people on what kind of an impact we are making in this world. Everyone can make a difference.

This is something everyone needs to know. It is inspiring to see that, yes, there are people in the world who do still care about the environment and what happens to it and ultimately, to us. Thank you for posting. I will spread the word.

Would love to own this, to share with others too!

Amazing and awe-inspiring to see the different value system of the people who are the best and greatest stewards of the environment.

It's easy to forget when it's sight unseen but this film reminds us of our responsibility as human beings living on this great earth.

Makes me want to do something too.

I can't wait to see it!
