proudly present the Alberta premiere of
THE MAGNITUDE OF ALL THINGS
A film by Sundance and Genie award-winning director
2020 | 85 min
at the 2021 NorthwestFest International
When Jennifer Abbott lost her sister to cancer, her sorrow opened her to the profound gravity of climate breakdown. Abbott’s new documentary The Magnitude of All Things draws close parallels between the experiences of grief—both personal and planetary. Stories from the frontlines of climate change merge with recollections from the filmmaker’s childhood on Ontario’s Georgian Bay. What do these stories have in common?
For the people featured, climate change is not just happening in the distant future: it is kicking down the front door, now. Battles waged, lamentations of loss, and raw testimony coalesce into an extraordinary tapestry, woven together with a raw emotion and a staggering beauty that transforms darkness into light and grief into action.
Available exclusively in Alberta
from May 6 to 16, 2021.
