Movie Info

Award-winning director Damon Gameau embarks on journey to explore what the future would look like by the year 2040 if we simply embraced the best solutions already available to us to improve our planet and shifted them into the mainstream. Structured as a visual letter to his 4-year-old daughter, Damon blends traditional documentary footage with dramatised sequences and high-end visual effects to create a vision board for his daughter and the planet.

Often there is something likable and practical about what Gameau is proposing.

You can't please everyone. Gameau is at least doing what he can to talk about some big problems, in an entertaining and accessible way.

May 22, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Gameau defaults to the position of inspiring people rather than alarming or overwhelming them. You leave the film wanting more, not less, of these sorts of productions.

Gameau's relentlessly cheery screen persona may grate with grouchy old cynics like me, but his noble motives and positive vibes are hard to fault.

A self-declared exercise in 'fact-based dreaming' 2040 has a certain naive optimism but couldn't we all do with a dose of that right now?

Gameau is a charming-enough host, though lacks the gravitas of someone like David Attenborough. Still, a positive voice like his deserves to be heard.
