No one wants to read another story about climate change.
We don’t want to watch another documentary about it, or hear it discussed on the news.
It’s overwhelming and alarming and makes us all feel just a little bit sick.
Why would anyone want to sit with that feeling?
They don’t. So a man named Damon Gameau, the creator of critically acclaimed documentary That Sugar Film, had an idea.
What if he was able to create a vision of what the world could look like by 2040, if we embraced the solutions that already exist and set them in place. Right now.
“I wanted to give people something to fight for instead of something to fight against,” Gameau told Mamamia. And that’s why he made the new documentary, 2040.
You can watch the trailer for 2040, right here. Post continues.
The award-winning film maker and actor, who you might recognise from Love My Way, calls it “fact-based dreaming”, which means everything in the film is being implemented somewhere in the world right now. He’s not making it up. He’s not making false promises.
