2040 | Australian Documentary screening at Babylon

About this Event

The Plan A Green Movie Nights are back and this time we are stepping up our game. For the first time ever in a local cinema, we are proud to present 2040 - We Save the World, a hybrid feature documentary by the award-winning Australian director Damon Gameau (The Sugar Film) in partnership with the non-profit and iconic Babylon Berlin.

There couldn’t be a more relevant time for this 11th edition of our famous Green Movie Night series, we are embarking on a journey with Damon to explore what the future could look like by the year 2040 if we simply embraced the best solutions already available to us to improve our planet and shifted them rapidly into the mainstream. With the motto #WhatsYour2040, The movie is structured as a visual letter to his 4-year-old daughter, Gameau blends traditional documentary with dramatised sequences and high-end visual effects to create a vision board of how these solutions could regenerate the world for future generations.

Finishing the night in a powerful note we invited 3 speakers to discuss the influence of storytelling and filmmaking in promoting sustainability in this climate change era, a discussion framed by Plan A’s Project Coordinator. As a bonus, Plan A prepared an open mic session for all sustainable business, projects and NGOs that wish to introduce their work to the Berlin community. We strongly invite the audience to participate in what will prove to be an assiduous discussion and amazing night.

This event is non-profit, all proceeds from the ticket sales will go to cover the Babylon Cinema and 2040 Documentary costs. Please make sure to register at: https://babylonberlin.eu/film/3204-2040-2040-we-saved-the-world

About Babylon Cinema

The Babylon is a cinema in the Mitte neighbourhood of Berlin and part of a listed building complex at Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz opposite to the Volksbühne. The building was erected 1928/29 according to plans of architect Hans Poelzig and is regarded as typical of its construction period, Neue Sachlichkeit. In 1948 the theatre was heavily renovated and served afterward as a speciality cinema in the GDR. After the auditorium had been closed because of the danger of collapse, it was refurbished and reconstructed from 1999 until 2001 in accordance with conservation guidelines.

In 2002 the reconstruction was awarded the "German Award for Monument Protection". Since 2001 the Babylon is once again open to the public and used primarily as arthouse cinema, as well as a venue for the Berlinale and musical and literary cultural events. Originally the cinema held 1200 members of the audience in one hall but is today divided into two halls with 450 and 70 seats.
