“Without question, TOMORROW is absolutely the best and most creative film on
the future of humanity and the environment”.
— Paul Hawken, author of the recently published bestseller, Project
Drawdown, & CEC’s 2017 Environmental Hero



Please join us for the Santa Barbara premier of the new environmental
documentary film Tomorrow. This optimistic film offers constructive and
creative solutions to climate change issues in agriculture, economics,
energy and education.   Join us for this inspirational look at concrete
solutions to help build a more sustainable future.


In 2012, French writer and activist Cyril Dion learned about a study carried
out by twenty-two scientists from around the world that forecasts the
extinction of multiple forms of life, and possibly a large part of humanity,
by the year 2100. This news barely received any media coverage at all.

Convinced that spreading catastrophic news is not effective, Dion decided to
explore, along with actress and director Mélanie Laurent and a small film
crew, what our world could look like if we brought together some of the best
solutions to date in agriculture, energy, economics, education, and
democracy. What they found was amazing, and inspired a film...


Directed & produced by Cyril Dion & Mélanie Laurent, the Tomorrow  film won
the Cesar award for best documentary, and has been viewed by over a million
people in France. The film has been released in over 30 countries, including
the U.S. in April 2017.


Tickets: May be purchased at the event, the Lobero Theater ticket office
downtown, or online (with additional fees)

Doors at the Marjorie Luke Theater will  open at 6:30 p.m. for walk-up
ticket sales and will call. Non-profit information tables and light snacks
will be available in the lobby. The two-hour film screening begins at 7:00
p.m. sharp.


In the spirit of the film, attendees are encouraged to bring reusable water
bottles to take advantage of the hydration station in the school hallway
just off the foyer, and to arrive to the event car free. For those who must

FILM TRAILER :  <https://www.tomorrow-documentary.com/#trailer-section>


TODAY, we need a new direction, objective... A new dream! The documentary
Tomorrow sets out to showcase alternative and creative ways of viewing
agriculture, economics, energy and education. It offers constructive
solutions to act on a local level to make a difference on a global level.
So far, no other documentary has gone down such an optimistic road...


New York Times Critic’s Pick  & Review: Worried About a Sustainable
Tomorrow? There’s Hope,

by Nicole Herrington,  April 19, 2017.


“It’s refreshing to see concrete solutions at work, many of them at the
grass-roots level. And the optimism of those countering ineffective
politicians and big business is infectious. The filmmakers — the French
actress Mélanie Laurent and the civic activist Cyril Dion — interview their
subjects during an intercontinental expedition that takes them to Detroit
and Todmorden, England, where urban gardening initiatives flourish; San
Francisco, which has an enviable recycling and composting program; Normandy,
France, where intercropping ensures that “each plant plays a role in the
ecosystem”; a village near Chennai, India, whose decentralized democracy
reflects the residents’ priorities; Copenhagen, with its renewable energy
model and biking culture; and many points in between.”



Companion book: Tomorrow, All Over the Globe, Solutions Already Exist by
Cyril Dion 



In France, a Film (TOMORROW) Taps Into a Desire for Change:


According to Mr. Dion, this success is proof that optimism, fueled by
positive can-do energy, can be a force for change.
