Next Thursday's Katherine Film Society offering is a documentary about changing the future.
Does all this talk of climate change and a world of catastrophic weather events, droughts and famine, population displacement and sea level rise leave you feeling melancholy (Climacholy)? Well there is a possibility that we could avoid this bleak future. Some of the solution is already within reach.
The documentary is about the future and a how we have within our grasp the knowledge to have a positive future.
2040 is not just a climate change documentary.
This is a vision of our future if we put our current knowledge to work and adopt policies to enact this knowledge.
Visit the "What's Your 2040" web site (https://whatsyour2040.com/) to see how you can contribute and learn more about the topics. Damon Gameau presents this documentary as a visual letter to his four-year-old daughter so there is a strong focus on empowering girls and women.
We can make a start to fixing our world, but we need to start. You can start by watching 2040.
The documentary screens on Thursday, August 22 from 6.30pm.
The next film on the list is the acclaimed Vietnam War movie Thunder Road, screening on September 5.
