Abbots in Transition has announced a screening of a visionary film which offers new hope to the climate crisis conversation.
The village group is set to host a screening of Damon Gameau’s film 2040 at the Henderson Hub on Sunday, July 3 at 8pm.
Partnering with Together Films, thew showing is part of the village Art Festival to encourage individuals to join the regeneration of our use of energy and the earth’s resources.
Damon Gameau, the Australian award-winning director (That Sugar Film, 2015) and actor, was motivated by his four-year-old daughter and concern for the planet she will inherit, so he embarked on a global journey to meet innovators and changemakers to discover what the future of the planet could look like by the year 2040 if we embraced the best solutions already available to us, and shifted them rapidly into the mainstream.
Speaking about the upcoming release, Damon said: “I am looking forward to sharing 2040 with UK audiences, at such a crucial and pivotal moment in the global climate crisis. I believe there is room for a new story, a story that focuses on the solutions.”
