Award-winning director Damon Gameau embarks on a journey 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. Structured as a visual letter to his 4-year-old daughter, Damon 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. 2040 is one of the most innovative, impactful and heartwarming approaches to the very topical, ongoing global discussion of climate change, and our future.

2040 originally screened at CIFF as part of our 2019 Generation Next Series which was programmed by our Generation Next Youth Previewer Team.
