For the new year, join Fourth Friday for a look at creative solutions to the ecological crisis. The acclaimed French film Demain (Tomorrow) follows Cyril Di, Mélanie Laurent, and their team to ten different countries to learn more about the impending disaster how people are working hard to avoid or mitigate it.
A Variety reviewer wrote this about the film:
As ever with this sort of advocacy film, there is a danger that it will only ever preach to the converted. And that’s perhaps why the filmmakers’ approach is so smart: ‘Tomorrow’ wastes little time trying to convince us that that world is ending. It takes that as a known fact, and then highlights the people who are fighting in small but appreciable ways to stop that from happening. Almost inadvertently, it therefore embodies not just the how, but a pretty good reason why humanity ought to survive: It has people like these in it, ordinary people whose example, be it ever so idealized here, makes … tomorrow seem not quite so bleak.
