Natural Awakenings Tucson

Tomorrow Kicks off Loft Cinema’s Social Justice Summer

Jun 02, 2017 12:53PM

The new, award-winning documentary Tomorrow will screen as part of The Loft Cinema’s Social Justice Summer—a free, weekly series pairing films exploring important issues with talkbacks led by community experts—at 7:30 p.m., June 7. All screenings will take place at the same time, Wednesday nights in June and July, at The Global Justice Center.

French actress and director Mélanie Laurent (star of Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds), became increasingly aware, shortly after having her first child, of several leading scientists’ reports stating that man’s environmental impact on the planet had reached a critical stage, which could threaten human life as we know it. Conscious of the kind of world her son would grow up in, Laurent teamed up with activist Cyril Dion to make Tomorrow, a documentary about our environmental and social challenges.

The film’s goal is not to frighten—though the facts are sobering—but to inspire, to go beyond the disaster scenarios and share concrete solutions as implemented by hundreds of communities around the world. Traveling to ten countries, Laurent and her colleagues introduce viewers to people making a difference in the fields of food, energy, finance, democracy and education. The film won the 2016 César Award for Best Documentary.

Location: The Global Justice Center, 225 E. 26th St., Tucson. For more information, call 520-795-0844, email [email protected] or visit LoftCinema.org. See ad, page 14.
