Event Description

'Tomorrow’ has been a phenomenon in France and Belgium. Already viewed by over 1.5 million people in France alone, and winner of Best Documentary at the Cesar Awards (the French Oscars), it has been hugely impactful. Produced by activist and writer Cyril Dion and actress/director Melanie Laurent, it tells the story of their search for solutions to the crisis humanity faces.

In 2014, the production team launched a crowdfunding campaign on KissKissBankBank in order to raise €200,000 to finance the film. In just 2 months, the contributions of 10,266 contributors meant that they actually raised €444,390. The film premiered in Paris during COP21.

It is a hugely positive, affirming and inspirational film, exploring creative solutions in the fields of food, energy, transport, economics and education. It visits permaculture farms, urban agriculture projects, community-owned renewable projects, local currencies, creative schools, ambitious recycling projects. It has been a huge boost to community- led projects, and is currently on release in 29 other countries, regularly receiving standing ovations, and leading to the formation of many new community projects.
It is the perfect antidote to the current sense of global despondency. It also has a great soundtrack!

Green Drinks Social
We encourage people to enjoy conversation before and after the film/speakers, with a bar to assist you!
This is a great chance to meet new friends and local organisations building a new narrative. If we want grassroots change to happen we need to build closer relationships locally to support one another, whilst create a space for an exchange of ideas to flow!

This event is FREE to all (donations welcome), please reserve your ticket to guarantee entry.
It is free because Sustainable Hackney is actively aiming to reach a culturally diverse audience, by taking away any financial barriers. We apply the same thinking when choosing films, speakers and when advertising events.
