A man planting a tree with his daughter in the foreground of a futuristic urban landscape

What do you want Kamloops to be like in 2040?

The world is changing. What would the future look like if we embraced the solutions that already exist today? This film, written as a “visual letter” to the filmmaker’s four-year old daughter, is a refreshingly optimistic take – and an invitation to help create the world we want to see.

Like all Films for Change events, this screening will be followed by a panel discussion featuring folks who are already “being the change” in Kamloops. Come share your thoughts!

Synopsis of “2040”

2040 is a hybrid feature documentary that looks to the future, but is vitally important NOW! Drawing on the best minds from around the world to focus on climate, economics, technology, civil society, agriculture and sustainability, 2040 maps out a pathway for change that can lead us to a more ecologically sustainable and equitable future.

Motivated by his 4-year-old daughter and concern for the planet she will inherit, Damon Gameau embarks on a global journey to meet the innovators and change makers pioneering the best solutions already available to us today to improve the health of our planet and societies. Inspired by these discoveries and guided by the many children he consults with along the way, Damon interweaves dramatic sequences and high-end visual effects to conjure a positive portrait of what ‘could be’ instead of the current dystopian future we are so often presented.
