A Powerful and unmissable French film Tomorrow (Demain) screening in English.Produced by activist and writer Cyril Dion and actress/director Mélanie Laurent, Tomorrow tells the story of their search for solutions to the crisis humanity faces.
The film (called Demain in France see www.demain-lefilm.com/en/film) features pioneers who are reinventing agriculture, energy, economy, democracy and education. It presents examples of concrete and positive actions that are already working and show what tomorrow’s world could look like. Tomorrow features a permaculture farm in France and also has Rob Hopkins of the Transition Network.
Maddy Harland, co-founder and editor of Permaculture magazine says: “This is a very powerful and empowering film, showing how simple solutions when combined on a community level can make a huge difference and become viral. In a world full of problems, Tomorrow provides more than just feel-good factors. It is full of cogent, practical and doable solutions. It is a hugely positive, affirming and inspirational film, exploring creative solutions in the fields of food, energy, transport, economics and education. It visits permaculture farms, urban agriculture projects, community-owned renewable projects, local currencies, creative schools, ambitious recycling projects. It has been a huge boost to community-led projects, and is currently on release in 29 other countries, regularly receiving standing ovations, and leading to the formation of many new community projects. It is the perfect antidote to the current sense of global despondency.
The film has been a huge hit in mainstream cinemas, particularly in France and Belgium where it has been seen by over 1.5 million people. It has also been the winner of several awards, including winner of Best Documentary at the Cesar Awards (the FrenchOscars), Tomorrow has been hugely impactful. We highly recommend it. It gives you myth debunking facts (70%-75% of food is successfully grown by smaller farmers). It tells and shows that permaculture has many answers and is a hugely valuable tool.
