Vision Films and award-winning event cinema distributor, Trafalgar Releasing, have revealed the official trailer for documentary Living In The Future’s Past, a beautifully photographed tour-de-force produced presented by Academy Award winner Jeff Bridges, who explores who we are, where we come from, how we think and why we do the things we do.
Bridges will share the screen with profound thinkers, scientists, and a dazzling array of the Earth’s creatures – including astronaut Piers Sellers, Being Ecological author Timothy Morton, and former NATO Supreme Allied Commander General Wesley Clark – to reveal profound concepts about ourselves and our future in ways that have never been presented quite like this on film before.
The documentary has been described as “a bright and intellectually honest film” by director Susan Kucera, and has already set out on a highly successful festival journey around the world since premiering at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival earlier this year.
Bridges himself said of the project: [the film is] “a metaphor for what’s already here. Our movie takes a good look under the hood of humanity. It incorporates elements of evolution, emergence, energy, phycology, to show how these effect our environment, our planet. It’s not fear that should drive us to act. It’s love. Like Teddy Roosevelt said: ‘Do what you can, with what you have, where you are'”.
Senior Vice President of Programming for Trafalgar Releasing Kymberli Frueh added: “With so much conversation around conservation and what we can do personally to protect our environment for future generations, this is a perfect social cause documentary that is meant to educate, inspire and create dialogue among attendees on a community level at local cinemas”.
Having already been awarded many accolades worldwide, including the UN Gold Award for Outstanding Achievement in International Communications, which best exemplifies the ideals and goals of the United Nations, Living In The Future’s Past will now be hitting cinemas in New York, Los Angeles and select markets on Friday, October 5, with a nationwide event occurring in theatres the following Tuesday.
