How often do we see the future depicted as a bleak, dystopian, de-humanized place? To leave a film about the future encouraged, motivated, inspired, and refreshed is a rare experience.
The film “2040” provides just such an experience. A hybrid feature documentary film chronicling a global journey to meet innovators and changemakers in the areas of economics, technology, civil society, agriculture, education and sustainability, 2040 was created by filmmaker Damon Gameau as a response to the impact of climate change on his young daughter. In it, he shows how people round the world are using solutions available right now to improve the health of the planet and the societies that operate within it, from marine permaculture to decentralised renewable energy projects. While distribution of the film is currently limited, it deserves to be seen widely.
