Dir. Damon Gameu.  Australia 2019. 92 mins.

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 embraced the best solutions 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.


Introduced by Leigh Venus, Activist and Community Leader, Newcastle Minimalists.
