Saturday Cinema – 2040
Saturday, 21 September, 2019 @ 7:00 PM - 8:45 PM
Documentary ‧ 1h32m
Award-winning director Damon Gameau (That Sugar Film) embarks on a journey to explore what the future could look like by the year 2040 if we simply embraced the best solutions already available to us to improve our planet and shifted them rapidly into the mainstream. Structured as a visual letter to his 4-year-old daughter, Damon blends traditional documentary with dramatised sequences and high-end visual effects to create a vision board of how these solutions could regenerate the world for future generations.
Interviews were filmed with over 100 children aged 6-11 years old in 7 different locations around the world. They shared their concerns, hopes and ideas for the future they want to inherit, all of which guided Damon’s journey to discover solutions that could help create that future.
