On the latest episode of the Ecosocialist Horizons Hour (EHH) we are joined by award-winning filmmaker Anne Macksoud for a discussion of her latest film, “The Widsom to Survive : Climate Change, Capitalism & Community.”


“The Wisdom to Survive” examines the specter of climate change, summoning several environmental activists, educators, lawyers, and artists to give moving testimony about what is to be done and the strategic meaning of community in the era of ecocidal capitalism.

Co-founder of Old Dog Documentaries, Macksoud has produced over 18 films. Her latest tackles what scientists are calling the biggest mass extinction in 252 million years, as a direct result of greenhouse gas emissions, or what some refer to as anthropogenic climate change.

Numerous studies have pointed out that if human beings do not drastically and immediately alter their way of life, particularly with regards to our dependence on industrialized activity — which is responsible for a majority of the world’s carbon emissions — the next few decades could see the loss of five out of the world’s remaining 10 million species.

Ecosocialist Horizons Hour is your frontline report on the global ecological crisis and the struggle for a livable world. EHH is the only source connecting the dots between Empire, Capitalism, Ecological Collapse, and the movements to rebuild humanity’s severed connection with the natural world.

EHH is not meant for the faint of heart. Join us with courage, spirit, and a bit of humor that is needed to answer the biggest challenge humanity has ever faced.
