"AN INFORMATIVE GLIMPSE AT VARIOUS WAYS TO REVERSE THE PATH OF GLOBAL DECLINE" - THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
FRANCE • DOCUMENTARY • 118 MINS • 2015 • PG
Directed by: MÉLANIE LAURENT & CYRIL DION
In this inspiring and essential César award-winning documentary, beloved French actor-filmmaker Mélanie Laurent (Boomerang, AF FFF16) teams with ecological rights advocate Cyril Dion to address the world’s grand environmental problems, and to explore how local communities across the globe are creating solutions.
In 2012, a study was published that announced the impending potential demise of the human race. Unable to ignore the hard facts that food, water and oil would be scarce within the lifetime of their children, directors Laurent and Dion set about visiting ten vastly different countries to explore what was being done to counteract the impending catastrophe. During their journey, they met the pioneers who are reinventing agriculture, energy, the economy, democracy and education.
By focussing on grassroots solutions and intermingling the serious with the playful, Tomorrow entertains while giving the audience autonomy to both engage in and change a situation in which everyone is involved. Above all, the message is one of resounding hope for a better future. This is essential viewing for anyone wanting to know what they can do to help save the planet.
