FOR TOMORROW, 72min., USA, Documentary
Directed by An Tran
Narrated by Daisy Ridley
Filmed with local crews around the world from the Andes to Sierra Leone, and with rare access to the United Nations Development Programme, For Tomorrow (narrated by Daisy Ridley) is the story of grassroots innovators dedicated to fighting some of today’s most pressing sustainability issues. Through actions, big and small, everyday changemakers are tackling local problems and inspiring their communities with ingenuity, resilience and vision. Whether it’s a solar-powered car built from electronic waste, or soaps and detergents made from food scraps by someone with no chemistry background, grassroots solutions are setting the planet on a more sustainable path. For a real breakthrough, governments and the private sector must recognize these unlikely innovators and celebrate them just as do those from Silicon Valley.
