Press Release: Special Guest: Greenpeace Co-founder to Present HOW TO CHANGE THE WORLD
September 8, 2015
Lunenburg Doc Fest is thrilled to announce that Bill Darnell, co-founder of Greenpeace, will join The Festival as special guest presenter for HOW TO CHANGE THE WORLD. Bill will introduce HOW TO CHANGE THE WORLD and participate in a post-screening Question & Answer session.
BILL DARNELL coined the name ‘Greenpeace’ when he said, “Let’s make it a green peace,” at the close of a Don’t Make a Wave Committee meeting. Bill was a crew member of the first anti-nuclear campaign. He now lives in Vernon BC, Canada, and is active in building a resilient, sustainable community and as an active grandparent, is helping to raise a resilient new generation.
HOW TO CHANGE THE WORLD. In 1971, a group of friends sail into a nuclear test zone, and their protest captures the world’s imagination. Using never before seen archival footage that brings their extraordinary world to life, HOW TO CHANGE THE WORLD is the story of the pioneers who founded Greenpeace and defined the modern green movement.
