Completed in 2015, Tomorrow―winner of the César Award for Best Documentary in 2016―exists among a set of “environmental” films that received broad distribution, most of them directed or produced by a celebrity such as The Salt of the Earth (Wim Wenders), Before the Flood (Leonardo DiCaprio) and An Inconvenient Truth (Al Gore).
Developed with an approach and dramatic treatment more common to works of fiction, these documentaries have sought to make a critical message accessible to the broadest audience possible. Their filmmakers travel to the four corners of the earth to film and document the devastating consequences of climate change on the planet, giving us alarming films to remind us that we’re going in the wrong direction.
In Tomorrow, Cyril Dion, environmental activist, and Mélanie Laurent, actress and director, seek out the men and women who are fighting to preserve our humanity. Far from a moralizing discourse, the filmmakers instead adopt a light and educational tone to propose solutions that could offer real help to our planet and its inhabitants.
