The Magnitude of All Things (2020)

April 08-11, 2021
$13.50 General

CIFF’s Top Docs (formerly known as Doc Soup) is a monthly feature-length documentary series running January - June 2021 online and in cinema.

THE MAGNITUDE OF ALL THINGS screens online April 8-11.

When Jennifer Abbot lost her sister to cancer, her sorrow opened her up to the profound gravity of climate breakdown. In her new documentary, THE MAGNITUDE OF ALL THINGS, Abbot 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.
