Our next free monthly film showing will be French documentary film DEMAIN (‘TOMORROW’), which premiered in Paris during COP21.
Feeling despondent with the current climate and global politics? Already viewed by over 1.5 million people in France alone, and winner of Best Documentary at the Cesar Awards (the French Oscars), ‘Tomorrow’ has been hugely impactful. Produced by activist and writer Cyril Dion and actress/director Mélanie Laurent, it tells the story of their search for solutions to the crisis humanity faces.
It is a hugely positive, affirming and inspirational film, exploring much needed creative solutions in the fields of food, energy, transport, economics and education. It visits permaculture farms, urban agriculture projects, community-owned renewable projects, local currencies, creative schools, ambitious recycling projects. It has been a huge boost to community-led projects, and is currently on release in 29 other countries, regularly receiving standing ovations, and leading to the formation of many new community projects.
We’re really pleased that the Transition Network has negotiated the rights to distribute the film in the UK and are happy to be able to show it here in Bedford. Maybe it will kickstart a Transition group here?! transitionnetwork.org
There is time to discuss the film together and action that we can take as a group and individually.
