- ‘Tomorrow’ seeks global answers to environmental decline
By Walter Addiego - Thursday Apr 13, 2017
[...] many environmental documentaries have come out in recent years and covered the same ground that some viewers (and reviewers) feel that the genre is in a rut.Give credit, then, to the French production “Tomorrow,” an advocacy film that’s more vibrant than many movies with similar themes and focuses on some less common angles.The film urges decentralization and bottom-up decision making as tools in remedying problems of global warming, food production and the like.The tone is more upbeat than you might expect, and there’s a certain glossiness to the movie that’s a refreshing change from some of its more dour documentary siblings.“Tomorrow” even has a bit of fun, such as showing co-director Mélanie Laurent (also an actress, in “Inglourious Basterds” for instance) and her crew trudging single file from location to location, crossing many borders in their search for ideas and answers.In Kuttambakkan, India, different castes are working side by side to combat environmental problems.[...] residents of Copenhagen have made huge strides toward their goal of weaning themselves from fossil fuels, trying to be the world’s first carbon-neutral city by 2025.Indirect approaches, like local currencies and the caste-busting going on in Kuttambakkan, promise progress in fighting issues other than environmental abuses, as well.
