LVUC's Social Justice Committee will present a showing of the film The Magnitude of All Things on Tuesday, April 9 at 6:30pm. Join us for popcorn and a thought-provoking movie night, followed by a discussion and reflection of the film's themes.

The film covers humanity's environmental impact on the planet and is described as "A cinematic exploration of the emotional and psychological dimensions of climate change."

From the film's website: "When Jennifer Abbott lost her sister to cancer, her sorrow opened her up to the profound gravity of climate breakdown. Abbott’s new documentary The Magnitude of All Things draws intimate 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? The answer, surprisingly, is everything. For the people featured, climate change is not happening in the distant future: it is kicking down the front door. Battles waged, lamentations of loss, and raw testimony coalesce into an extraordinary tapestry, woven together with raw emotion and staggering beauty that transform darkness into light, grief into action."
