A character driven documentary following individuals that strive to change the world of consumerism.

Somerset Film based at the Engine Room in Bridgwater has responded to the town and county council’s declaration of a climate emergency by programming a series of film screenings that aim to inform and encourage positive social change through action. On Friday the 20th of March at 7pm they will be screening the award-winning French documentary Future of Hope.

Future of Hope sees then 17-year-old writer and director, Guillaume Thébault undertake 15 interviews with economists, botanists, writers, teachers, farmers, vendors and perma-culturists to challenge the modern-day agricultural industry. Guillaume’s approach is driven by positivity as he focuses on functional and widely applicable solutions that can limit the damage currently being caused by economic and environmental issues within the industry.

Somerset Film assistant producer Alisa Čengić said,

“In a time where fear and anger dominate the headlines, as the climate emergency becomes increasingly graver and our response critical, Future of Hope is a beacon of light. It’s uplifting message and problem-solving approach inspires hopeful action”.
