When French actress and new mother Mélanie Laurent learned about the dire predictions from the journal Nature which announced the possible extinction of a part of mankind before the end of the 21st century, she wanted to do something that might help avert the disaster.
Turning to her own craft, she joined activist Cyril Dion and gathered a team of four filmmakers to search for solutions.
The film, spoken in French, English and Hindi, follows its makers as they travel around the world meeting people intent on making the world a better, greener, more sustainable place. The uplifting stories document improvements that are actually being implemented in the spheres of agriculture, the economy, energy, democracy, and education–side-by-side–to show what our world might look like tomorrow.
Laurent, who has appeared in more than 40 feature films, including Quentin Tarantino’s Inglorious Bastards, came out of the experience with a hopeful message about our future.
The documentary, entitled Demain (“Tomorrow”), is running throughout France in private and public screenings.
