Jerry Rothwell’s festival-favourite documentaryHow to Change the World lands in select cinemas today, and we have a clip to celebrate.
Rothwell’s film centres around the group of protestors who founded the now worldwide Greenpeace movement in the 1970s, following a fight against nuclear arms testing.
The doc debuted at Sundance earlier this year where it was nominated for the Grand Jury Prize and walked away with the coveted award for editing, then moving on to sweep the Sheffield International Documentary Festival where its creator Rothwell was celebrated with the Sheffield Green Award.
With this much great buzz surrounding the film, it’s sure to be an eye-opening look at the dangers our world faces.
Check out a clip below, which offers up a shocking look at an American nuclear weapons test through archive footage.
How to Change the World (2015), directed by Jerry Rothwell, is distributed in the UK by Picturehouse Entertainment and is in cinemas now. You can read our review here.
