Description: Coming August 3rd as a Special Columbia Festival of the Arts Virtual Screening! Following the successful Columbia Film Festival, we are proud to introduce the new Columbia Arts Channel inaugural project with this “FREE/Pay What You Can” Event!
During these extremely difficult times we are striving to help support the Arts, give back to our community and, on a personal level so many have shared, to help give us all something special to look forward to. Your donation will help us to continue to bring events, like this beautiful film which is an inspiration of hope that looks towards our future with great optimism and vision for a healthier environment we can create for our children.
2040 is a hybrid feature documentary that looks to the future, but is vitally important NOW!
The 2040 journey began with award-winning director Damon Gameau (That Sugar Film). Motivated by concerns about the planet his 4-year-old daughter would inherit, Damon embarked on a global journey to meet innovators and changemakers in the areas of economics, technology, civil society, agriculture, education and sustainability. 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. From marine permaculture to decentralised renewable energy projects, he discovered that people all over the world are taking matters into their own hands.
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.
