A Vision Of The World In 2040
Please join us on Monday, August 10 as we co-sponsor Santa Barbara Permaculture Network’s Eco-Film screening at the West Wind Drive-In outdoor theater with the premiere of the newly released Australian film 2040.
What will the future look like in 2040? As a parent of a four-year old daughter, award winning filmmaker Damon Gameau deeply contemplates the effects of climate change over the next 20 years and how it will impact the planet and his daughter’s future.
Although the future looks a bit uncertain, and even scary, Gameau begins to think we might have the means to do better if we simply embraced the best solutions already available and shifted them into the mainstream. With this in mind, Gameau embarks on a journey around the world to learn what solutions might actually already exist, and discovers some remarkable and inspiring people with stories to tell, and innovations to share.
Structured as a visual letter to his daughter 2040 blends traditional documentary footage with dramatized sequences and high-end visual effects to create a vision board for his daughter and the planet. Gameau is both the storyteller and the active researcher, and while taking his film worldwide, has been conducting interactive public webinars with input from additional climate activists and experts.
The evening will start with a brief film about a potential Marine Permaculture project hoping to locate in California. Brian von Herzen of the Climate Foundation is featured in the 2040 film showcasing Marine Permaculture as one of the most promising solutions for solving climate change by restoring the health of kelp forests around the world, and has launched a fundraiser for their California project.
The event takes place on Monday, August 10, 7:30pm at the West Wind Drive In, located at 907 S Kellogg Ave, Goleta, CA 93117. Tickets available at the entrance kiosk the night of the event (no prepay tickets available). $10 per person, or $20 per car.
