Description

About the film

'Tomorrow’ has been a phenomenon in France and Belgium. Already viewed by over 1.5 million people in France alone, and winner of Best Documentary at the Cesar Awards (the French Oscars), it has been hugely impactful. Produced by activist and writer Cyril Dion and actress/director Melanie Laurent, it tells the story of their search for solutions to the crisis humanity faces.

It is a hugely positive, affirming and inspirational film, exploring creative solutions in the fields of food, energy, transport, economics, democracy, 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, frequently 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. It also has a great soundtrack!

Green Drinks Social
We encourage people to network before and after the film and Q&A, with a bar to assist you!
This is a great chance to meet new friends and local organisations, exchange information and build a new narrative. For grassroots change to happen, we need to build closer relationships locally and support one another, whilst creating a space for an exchange of ideas to flow!

Cost
This event is FREE to all (donations welcome), but please reserve your ticket to guarantee entry.
It is free because Sustainable Hackney is actively aiming to engage a culturally diverse audience, by taking away any financial barriers. We apply the same thinking when choosing films, speakers and when advertising events.
