What is part of our surroundings? Buildings, nature, concrete, landscapes… All the different aspects of our environment make the theme of this first edition of EARTHLY VISIONS: European Film Selection at SALT in Oslo.

 

The EUNIC Cluster in Norway (European Union National Institutes for Culture), a group of European embassies and cultural institutes, is proud to present this event to put forward high quality films and documentaries from all around Europe.

The French film : Tomorrow by Cyril Dion and Mélanie Laurent

 

 

Synopsis : With humanity threatened by the collapse of ecosystems, journalist and NGO director Cyril Dion and actor and filmmaker Mélanie Laurent head out across the world, with a small film crew, in search of a solution that can save their children. Based on the most successful experiments in all sectors (agriculture, energy, housing, economics, education…) they are going to attempt to write a new story about what could happen in the future. Only by elaborating this vision will enough of the planet’s inhabitants be enlisted to build a new society; just like what the dream of “progress” inspired in the 20th century.
