Sundance 2015: How to Change the World

Jan 22, 2015

Thursday, we begin our Sundance Film Festival coverage with the story of the eccentric and passionate creation of Greenpeace. Founder Bob Hunter was a journalist with a vision for winning public sympathy. His idea was to plant “mind bombs,” actions that would go viral. So they brought cameras and made sure images of factory-like whaling ships and dead baby seals reached the public. That archival footage anchors the new documentary, and we’re joined by director Jerry Rothwell. It’s called “How to Change the World.”

"How to Change the World" is an entry in the World Cinema Documentary Competition at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival. It premiers Thursday January 22 at 8:30 p.m. at the MARC in Park City. Additional screenings will run throughout the festival. DETAILS
