Damon Gameau
Running Time
92 mins

If you crave an upbeat Australian environmental documentary that defies the, ahem, doomsters and gloomsters by thinking positive thoughts, 2040 is the idealistic film for you.

Filmmaker Damon Gameau frames it as a conversation with his four-year-old daughter, who will be 25 in 2040. If that doesn’t have you reaching for the sickbag, you’ll probably be overjoyed at the sight of hordes of other rug-rats proposing their own imaginative solutions to looming environmental catastrophe in this relentless feast of can-do optimism. Director Damon Gameau will be present for a Q&A after the Watershed’s screening on December 1.
