Award-winning documentary features JRBP directors
César award-winning documentary Tomorrow tells the story of its co-producers/co-directors, Cyril Dion and Melanie Laurent. Dion, a French activist, author and journalist, discovered a 2012 study co-authored by Stanford scientists Anthony Barnosky and Elizabeth Hadly, "Approaching a state shift in the Earth's biosphere," published in Nature, which discussed how humankind could be suffering between 2040 and 2100 if drastic changes are not made to the world's predominant way of life.
Dion shared his concerns with his friend, actress and filmmaker Melanie Laurent, who for several years has been involved in his NGO Colibris and Greenpeace. Unnerved by the understanding that food and water would be scarce and climate catastrophes common within the lifetime of their own children, the friends visited different countries across the world to explore solutions to these pressing environmental concerns.
Tomorrow focuses on imparting not just valuable information about grassroots efforts in local communities to make environmental change a reality, but also on inspiring others with a hopeful call to action for a better tomorrow.
