“Like we were able to do with That Sugar Film, I hope 2040 will help facilitate all kinds of conversations about positive change for the world we live in,” said actor turned filmmaking crusaders Damon Gameau upon the launch of the teaser for his new film. “There are some amazing regenerative solutions that great people around the world have already gotten the ball rolling on. Get on board and join the regeneration!”
And according to the presser: ‘Damon’s new film 2040 is 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 four-year-old daughter about the world he hopes she will inherit, Gameau blends traditional documentary with dramatised sequences and high-end visual effects to create a vision board of how these regenerative practices could help shape the world for future generations.
‘Drawing on the best minds from around the world to focus on climate, economics, technology, civil society, agriculture and sustainability, the film maps out a pathway for change that can lead us to a more ecologically sustainable and equitable future. 2040 is an aspirational film full of hope about the possibility to make changes that will shift the course for humanity and the planet. 2040 is the narrative the next generation needs to see, to aspire to, and to believe is possible.’
Madman will release 2040 in mid-2019
