Movie Synopsis

2040 is a hybrid feature documentary that looks to the future, but is vitally important now!

Motivated by concerns about the planet his four year old daughter would inherit, award winning director Damon Gameau (That Sugar Film) embarked on a global journey to meet innovators and changemakers. Drawing on their expertise, he sought to identify the best solutions, available to us now, that would help improve the health of our planet and the societies that operate within it.

This journey is the central premise for the documentary ‘2040’, a story of hope that looks at the very real possibility that humanity could reverse global warming and improve the lives of every living thing in the process. It is a positive vision of what ‘could be’ instead of the dystopian future we are so often presented with.
