Synopsis

THE FUTURE IS BETTER THAN ITS REPUTATION – a film about people who make a difference. The protagonists are committed to a vibrant political culture, to seeking sustainable solutions for our food and our homes, or to examining with clear insight the needs of our economy and the essence of justice in our society. 


Everywhere we hear about crises. The media stokes our fears. How do we respond? Will we shut our eyes and ears? Or will we roll up our sleeves and take action?

THE FUTURE IS BETTER THAN ITS REPUTATION will boost your courage as you watch its six protagonists show that it is possible to shape the future.
