SHOWING AS PART OF CLIMATE ACTION WEEK
SEPTEMBER 21-27, 2020
dir. Damon Gameau, 2020
NR, 92 min, Austraila, in English | Bengali | Swahili | Swedish
Award-winning director Damon Gameau (That Sugar Film) 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 dramatized sequences and high-end visual effects to create a vision board of how these solutions could regenerate the world for future generations.
We hope 2040 is widely viewed during Bellingham’s ALL IN for Climate Week. Get your tickets NOW in the 2040 Screening Room!

“Accessible, informative and optimistic look at solutions to the climate crisis…2040 is a rare climate documentary with an optimistic message.”
— The New York Times
“Inspiring and empowering…as entertaining as educational.”
— The Los Angeles Times
“A surprisingly sunny, hopeful, counter-intuitive alternative to the usual doomy warnings of impending apocalypse. …2040 will have obvious appeal to school-age viewers, but it also has enough newsworthy hooks and genial comic energy to reach a general audience.”
— Hollywood Reporter
