“This is a brave film that pulls no punches in exploring the impacts of climate change on human society. Combining a personal perspective with a global survey of community responses to the challenge, it is simultaneously a tragedy about climate change and a celebration of human potential. Like the director, you may find yourself both crying and dancing.”
Susan Clayton, Professor of Psychology and Environmental Studies, College of Wooster
"Excellent. Filmed from the perspectives of those most impacted, the poor and indigenous people around the world, HOW TO LET GO OF THE WORLD puts a human face on the consequences of climate change. Although the film highlights the daunting task of confronting the overexploitation of planetary resources and the increasing threats of climate change, it nevertheless maintains optimism by focusing on the human spirit and the courage of those willing to take action."
Dr. Paul Mohai, Professor of Natural Resources and Environment, University of Michigan
