BCCAG has been able to access a copy of Tomorrow (Demain) that was shown at the French Film Festival this year. Mostly spoken in English with some sub titles, this film is very uplifting and a fitting end to our turbulent year. It comes highly recommended.
This is the final Forum for the year and will include tea, coffee, wine and nibbles. Your donation of $10 will help to defray our costs.
Please note the change of venue for this event.
In this inspiring and essential César award-winning documentary, beloved French actor-filmmaker Mélanie Laurent (Boomerang, AF FFF16) teams with ecological rights advocate Cyril Dion to address the world’s grand environmental problems, and to explore how local communities across the globe are creating solutions.
In 2012, a study was published that announced the impending potential demise of the human race. Unable to ignore the hard facts that food, water and oil would be scarce within the lifetime of their children, directors Laurent and Dion set about visiting ten vastly different countries to explore what was being done to counteract the impending catastrophe. During their journey, they met the pioneers who are reinventing agriculture, energy, the economy, democracy and education.
By focussing on grassroots solutions and intermingling the serious with the playful, Tomorrow entertains while giving the audience autonomy to both engage in and change a situation in which everyone is involved. Above all, the message is one of resounding hope for a better future. This is essential viewing for anyone wanting to know what they can do to help save the planet.
