2040 is an innovative feature documentary that looks to the future, but is vitally important NOW.
Award-winning director Damon Gameau embarks on a journey to explore what the future would look like by the year 2040 if we simply embraced the best solutions already available to us to improve our planet and shifted them into the mainstream. Structured as a visual letter to his 4-year-old daughter, Damon blends traditional documentary footage with dramatised sequences and high-end visual effects to create a vision board for his daughter.
Cumulus played an integral role in collaborating with Damon to bring to life his vision of what the world would look like at 2040.
Development supported by Screen Australia and Film Victoria and selected for Good Pitch Australia 2016.
“I cannot speak highly enough about the collaboration with Cumulus in making 2040. The engaged discussions with the Cumulus team about what our future may look like, leading to watching those discussions come to life, was a real highlight of the film making process. Their passion and commitment to the realisation of the vision has helped make the film what is it. I look forward to many more engaged discussions with them in the years ahead.” Damon Gameau – Director.
