Om de Corona-crisis het hoofd te bieden en de gezondheidsrisico's tot een minimum te beperken, heeft programmastichting Pakhuis de Zwijger alle publieke programma's t/m 6 april heeft geannuleerd.

The documentary 2040 follows Damon Gameau's imagining of a future for his daughter in the year 2040, where climate change has been left untreated. He investigates a number of different areas that are contributing greatly to climate change. Dividing his focus from renewable energy and alternative transportation to progressive farming. He also finds solutions and technologies available today, that are able to reverse climate change.

2040 is a hybrid feature documentary that looks to the future, but is vitally important. NOW! Award-winning director Gameau (That Sugar Film) embarks on a journey to explore what the future could look like by the year 2040 if we simply embraced the best solutions already available to us to improve our planet. Structured as a visual letter to his 4-year-old daughter, Damon blends a traditional documentary with dramatised sequences and high-end visual effects to create a vision board of how these solutions could regenerate the world for future generations.

With an introduction of Maurits Groen, Sustainability entrepreneur and consultant (a.o. Waka waka, Kipster, Climate Cleanup).
