It’s not a movie, it’s a movement. – David King
TOMORROW EVER AFTER
Shaina is a historian who lives 600 years in the future. Humans, at this point, have cleaned up the planet. War, poverty, pollution, greed, exploitation, depression, loneliness – these are things that she’s read about in history books. And while she studied this dark period of history, in which money was viewed as more precious than people, she has never, in the flesh, seen humans hurt other humans.
While visiting a group of physicists who experiment with time travel, Shaina is accidentally left stranded in our time. Here she involves herself with a group of friends who are as lovable as they are flawed. As the harsh realities of their lives unfold, she learns what no history book could have taught her.
Old habits, however, are hard to break, and Shaina can’t help but assume that everyone around her is honest, generous, and caring, as she works to recruit the help that she needs to get back home.
While most futuristic films depict a dystopia that is even colder and less human than our own, this film takes a bold departure from the sci-fi genre by exploring the possibility of a future in which caring and compassion govern our societies. What if the future of humanity and the planet turns out exactly as we would want it to be?
Many of us know that time is running out to take effective action on climate change. We are facing a climate emergency without an emergency level mobilisation of economy, civil society and government. Come and watch the film and hear about the situation facing us and about the potential for using nonviolent civil disobedience to move our governments to action. Meet local people who share your concerns for the future of life on earth and discuss what we can do together.
Cooee Kitchen will be open from 7pm serving chai and sweet yummies!
