Films for Change: 2040 Documentary Screening

The TRU and Kamloops community are welcome to join us for a screening of the 2019 Australian documentary 2040 which looks at the effects of climate change and what technologies that exist today can do to reverse them.

The documentary will be shown in the Alumni Theatre and follows the director, Damon Gameau, through an imagining of what the future could look like for his four-year-old daughter, Velvet, if the climate change crisis was solved.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m., the film begins at 7 p.m. and will be followed by a facilitated discussion until approximately 9:15 p.m.

This documentary is brought to TRU through the Films for Change: Community Films Series program by Transition Kamloops and the TRU Sustainability Office.

They emphasize a local economy, healthy ecosystems, and grassroots community building, while reducing dependence on fossil fuels.

They believe in a better way: a community that sustains life in all its diversity, strives for equality and justice and invests in the future.
