Just in time for Earth Day!
French actress and director Mélanie Laurent (Inglourious Basterds), became increasingly aware, shortly after having her first child, of several leading scientists reports stating that man’s environmental impact on the planet had reached a critical stage, which could threaten human life as we know it.
Conscious of the kind of world her son would grow up in, Laurent teamed up with Cyril Dion to make TOMORROW, a documentary about our environmental and social challenges.
The film’s incredible success lies in their choice not to frighten — though the facts are sobering — but to inspire; to go beyond the disaster scenarios, and share concrete solutions as implemented by hundred of communities around the world.
Traveling to ten countries, from the urban farms of Detroit to an English town that mints its own David Bowie currency to encourage local spending, from a completely sustainable village in southern India to the progressive schools of Finland, Laurent and her colleagues introduce viewers to people making a difference in the fields of food, energy, finance, democracy, and education. Their shared ideas and examples make TOMORROW one of the most essential and unexpectedly inspirational viewing experiences of our time.
"Required viewing for anyone wondering what they could do to pitch in and save the planet. Given the onslaught of bad news that's been hitting the world this year, it's nice to see that some people are taking matters into their own hand, dishing out vibes both positive and worthwhile." - Hollywood Reporter
