PRESS:

"Perhaps the most visceral reasoned call to action for humanity since An Inconvenient Truth." - Tammy Bannister, VIFF Programmer

"One of the Top 10 documentaries coming out in 2021." - Doc Weekly

"There is something profoundly affecting about a director whose film about the terrifying threat of climate change starts from the grief she is experiencing at the loss of her sister to cancer." - Nick Holdsworth, Modern Times

"Jennifer Abbott’s new film approaches climate changer from a unique and personal perspective. […] Environmental docs often favor fist-shaking rage or hopeful optimism to inspire audiences to act. The Magnitude of All Things taps into a new emotion: grief. […] Magnitude resonates with its quietly poetic power […] and is is equal parts philosophy and catharsis. […] It’s as poignant as provocative." - Pat Mullen, POV Magazine
