What will our planet look like in the year 2040? And more importantly, can we do anything to make a difference in our future? Director Damon Gameau argues the answer is “yes” in this idealistic and hopeful documentary that imagines the year 2040 as a brighter and better world, despite concerns about the planet’s declining health. Investigations into the potential of innovations like renewable energy and alternative transportation infuse this documentary with optimism and a sense of determination to affect positive environmental change. Structured as a conversation with his four-year-old daughter, Gameau uses stunning visual effects and dramatized sequences to envision a better world for his daughter and the planet.
