Co-produced and directed by French filmmakers Cyril Dion and Melanie Laurent, the documentary is a vignette of the pair’s journey around the world in search of solutions and those driving sustainable changes.
The journey was sparked by a Nature magazine article that predicted the possible extinction of mankind between 2040 and 2100 if our way of does not drastically change, Dion has said.
The duo, who had small children at home, set off to 10 countries with a small film crew to interview individuals and organizations that are re imagining everything from agriculture, transportation and energy to the economy, democracy and education.
The result is a collective glimpse at permaculture farms, urban agriculture projects, community-owned renewable projects, local currencies, creative schools, and ambitious recycling projects.
One of the top French documentaries in past 15 years, the film won a Cesar Award for Best Documentary Film in 2016. It is being released in select theaters across the nation this weekend, including at Asbury Park’s independent cinema.
