“The 2040 movie is the most inspiring and hopeful media event ever to come out about climate change and social justice. You’ll walk away from this film knowing that you, personally, can make a difference and that technologies are available right now to make the shift to a resilient future.”

~ Sami Aaron, The Resilient Activist

Watch the Trailer

Stream the movie at your convenience any time from now through October 3rd, 2020!

Award-winning director Damon Gameau embarks on a journey to explore what the future could look like by 2040 if we simply embraced the best solutions that exist today. 2040 is a story of hope that looks at the very real possibility that humanity could reverse global warming and improve the lives of every living being in the process. It is a positive vision of what ‘could be’, instead of the dystopian future with which we are so often presented.
