An innovative and optimistic hybrid documentary set in the future, in which award-winning director Damon Gameau, for his young daughter’s benefit, enthusiastically imagines the year 2040 that could be if we embrace existing solutions to improve our planet and bring them into the mainstream.
Structed as a love letter to his four-year-old daughter. Damon blends traditional documentary footage with dramatised sequences and high-end visual effects to create a vision board for his daughter – and the planet. He travels the world in search of technologies and practices that will reduce our dependency on carbon, pull people out of poverty, and help create a better future – his journey takes us from regenerative farming practices in rural Australia to a Bangladeshi village powered by distributed solar home systems; from marine permaculture experiments in Woods Hole, United Sates, to an on-demand autonomous electric vehicle in New York City.
Full of hope – it invites us, as well as the children he interviews, to dream of a better tomorrow. It’s an inspiring vision of the future – as Gameau says: “we have everything we need right now to make it happen.” So… let’s get started.
‘Accessible, informative and optimistic look at solutions to the climate crisis… 2040 is a rare climate documentary with an optimistic message.’ The New York Times
