Watch this award-winning doc in recognition of Earth Day, April 22! Get your free ticket and watch the film! 

In honour of Earth Day, along with many grassroots groups, we are offering a free screening of Jennifer Abbott’s new documentary The Magnitude of All Things NOW PLAYING on the NFB website. This cinematically stunning and poetic film merges stories from the frontlines of climate change with recollections of the loss of writer/director Jennifer Abbott’s sister, drawing intimate parallels between personal and planetary grief.

The Magnitude of All Things opened at VIFF 2020, won the Best Canadian Feature Award at Planet in Focus and the Audience Choice Award at DocLands in California. It also screened at RIDM (Montreal), IDFA (Amsterdam), Cinequest (San Jose), among many other festivals.
