This is a great film. It is a documentary assessing how we can manage the Earth in the next 20 years. He is an amiable (but committed) host, who takes us through the ways we can improve our planet and, it is structured as a "visual letter to his 4 year old daughter". He travels far and wide to gather his evidence and it is a well-structured "journey". I saw this film in a packed-out cinema in Melbourne (Australia) and we initially thought that we had come into the wrong cinema because there were so many children with their parents present. Asking the parent beside me, she said that she brought her children because they needed to know about this film. I can add that these children were indeed very interested in the unfolding story. It is not perfect, but it comes close, that's for sure. His presentation is quite innovative, and also engaging. Certainly an important documentary to see.
Practical solutions to environmental concerns are addressed with the hope that the filmmaker's daughter, 21 years old in the year 2040, will face a hopeful future.
