‘How to change the world’ generates a big buzz after its premiere at Sundance

United in their opposition to a U.S. atomic test on an Alaskan island, they sailed an aging fishing boat straight for the test site.

Insight’s feature length documentary How To Change The World, co-produced with MET Films, was nominated in the World Cinema Documentary Competition and debuted to great acclaim at its world premiere on opening night of the Sundance Film Festival (January 22nd, 2015).
