About the Film:
 
Cyril Dion, journalist and NGO director and Melanie Laurent, actress and filmmaker, together with a team of four people, carried out an investigation in ten different countries to figure out what may solve the ecological, economic and social crisis that our countries are going through. During their journey, they met the pioneers who are re-inventing agriculture, energy, economy, democracy and education. Joining those concrete and positive actions which are already working, they began to figure out what could be tomorrow’s world. 
 
TOMORROW won the 2016 César Award for Best Documentary Film.
