Researching for my new film on the sense of belonging, I have been urged to watch the optimistic French film, Tomorrow, that explores solutions for living more creatively and consciously on our planet.
We hear about the gloomy ecological future every day: food, water and oil will soon be hard to find. The ice cap is melting, species are disappearing at a rate unforeseen, whole Pacific islands are being wiped out… We know a lot about these dark facts yet do they really call us into action? Are these facts propelling us to really imagine new solutions?
What if we just needed to change our focus from depressing informations to asking the right questions, questions that will not allow us to sink into a passive lethargy? Focussing on what will trigger us to actively make our world a better place. Or better yet, how about focussing on the opportunities presently opening up for us to rethink and reshape our agriculture, energy systems, financial transactions and educational systems. Could an ecological documentary compel people to re-imagine and contribute to the future of the planet?
In this rhythmic film, directors Mélanie Laurent and Cyril Dion have decided to meet gloom with hope and energy and ask action propelling questions. They thus embark on a vibrant global quest to meet the men and women who are creatively reshaping their environments. The sassy documentary offers here a new vision for the world packed with a uplifting narrative.
