2040: The Regeneration
2040: The Regeneration is an innovative feature documentary that looks to the future, while focusing on what is happening now. Award-winning director Damon Gameau (director of That Sugar Film) embarks on a journey to explore what the future could 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 with dramatized sequences and high-end visual effects to create a vision board of how these solutions could regenerate the world for future generations.

“At last! Something positive about our future! I thought this was a wonderful documentary and one which should be shown around the country to all our secondary schools (maybe a simplified version for primary schools) as it is so full of what we can do now, in ways which are totally doable. If only our politicians were also doers, instead of endless talkers. I cannot recommend this film enough – and if I can be instrumental in making it accessible to a greater audience,”
“This documentary is not only stunning watch, it had me invested from the start. It was presented in a fun and engaging way, and i was never bored. No other documentary is as vital to watch, and as educational, as this insanely beautiful masterpiece. I cannot recommend this film enough.”
“Fantastic film. We need to do exactly what this film suggests — envision what a positive, just and environmentally sustainable future might look like and then get to work building it!”
