Transition Network has been one of the leading inspiration of the narrative and the spirit of “TOMORROW”.
“TOMORROW”is an upbeat environmental documentary directed and narrated (in English) by actress Melanie Laurent (Inglorious Basterds) and activist Cyril Dion.
Together, they traveled to 10 countries to visit permaculture farms, urban agriculture projects, community-owned renewable initiatives. They introduce us to people making a difference in the fields of food, energy, finance, democracy, and education.
In their journey to find some of the most inspiring initiatives, they’ve spent a great time filming The Transition movement.
The film shows how bottom-up community action can have a meaningful impact by offering constructive solutions to act on a local level. So far, no other documentary has gone down this road... (Soon a book will be available too - see below for more details)
“TOMORROW”is a powerful tool to educate and engage your community
Its incredible success lies in the choice not to frighten — though the facts are sobering — but to inspire; to go beyond the disaster scenarios, and share concrete solutions as implemented by hundreds of communities around the world.
The primary goal is to encourage as many people as possible to see this important film in theaters across America and your support can make a difference.
We would be grateful if you could share this wonderful project with your community as I believe they would be very interested in discovering all these alternative solutions.
