Cinema - WOW - Tomorrow (Demain) (cert tbc)
Directors: Melanie Laurent, Cyril Dion
Starring: Rob Hopkins, Jeremy Rifkin, Vandana Shiva
France, 2015, 1 hour 58 minutes
An inspiring, timely movie about the best ways to solve our ecological crisis. Presented in five key chapters that lay out clearly and simply the work of pioneers who are reinventing agriculture, energy, the economy, democracy and education. From the Bristol Pound and Detroit’s urban farms to Copenhagen, where 70% of the energy consumed comes from non-fossil fuels, this reveals the positive, concrete solutions that already work. A feel-good, feel-active eco-doc that shows the emergence of what could be tomorrow's world . . .
A panel discussion will follow the film, with filmmaker Helen Iles and artist Fern Smith, both involved in the environmental sector in Wales. To learn more about them, click on the 'Further Information' tab to see their biographies.
