Come along to the Hobart Premiere of Disruption


"Not quite sure you feel like taking to the streets to spur action on climate change? This new movie aims to change your mind.

In the lead-up to the People's Climate March later this month, filmmakers are releasing a new documentary called "Disruption," which highlights the consequences of ignoring climate change. The film features well-known environmental leaders such as Bill McKibben and Dr. James Hansen, and documents activists' efforts to mobilize people for what may be the largest climate change march in history.

"We’re the first generation to feel the impacts of climate disruption, and the last generation that can do something about it," the film's synopsis reads." Huffington Post.
