In case you missed Drawdown East End’s special showing of the film “2040” this past January at the Southampton Arts Center, now is your chance to see this inspirational award-winning film at home, as it launched on Friday, June 5, and will now be available online for several weeks.
In “2040,” director Damon Gameau embarks on a journey to explore what the future could look like by the year 2040 if we embrace the best solutions already available today to improve the planet and shift them rapidly into the mainstream. Structured as a visual letter to his 4-year-old daughter, Gameau blends traditional documentary with dramatized sequences and high-end visual effects to create a vision of how these solutions could regenerate the world for future generations.
The film features innovative best-practices and technologies in practice today that are solutions to the climate crisis and explores opportunities for economic, health and security benefits.
Locally, Drawdown East End will host “Envisioning 2040 on the East End,” a free interview and discussion about “2040” via Zoom this Friday, June 12, at 2 p.m.
Hosted by radio journalist Francesca Rheannon, producer and host of Writer’s Voice and Sustainable East End, panelists will include architect and sculptor Rob Calvert, Tina Mills of Drawdown100Women4Women, Reverend Kimberley Quinn Johnson of the Universalist Unitarian Congregation of the South Fork and Lena Tabori, chair of East Hampton Town’s Energy Sustainability and Resiliency Committee.
