Film Synopsis: Tomorrow (Demain)

Director: Cyril Dion & Mélanie Laurent | Countries of production: France | Year: 2015 | Length: 112 min
Language: English, Finnish, French with English subtitles | Age: 12+ years

A joyful message of hope for a better, greener and more sustainable future.

When contemplating the world our children will inherit, it is easy to become paralysed by the prospect of resource scarcity, species extinction and collapsing ecosystems. For the directors of Tomorrow (actress Mélanie Laurent and environmental activist Cyril Dion) the problems we face are, in the most part, only too well known. What we need are solutions.

Their globetrotting film spotlights inspiring examples of ordinary citizens, local organisers and activists working together to devise new, sustainable ways of approaching food production, energy, education and the economy. From urban gardening in Detroit to renewable energy sources in Copenhagen, via a remarkable direct democracy initiative in the Indian village of Kuttambakkan, Tomorrow offers other futures to envision – and invites us to roll up our sleeves and get started today.
