LIVING IN THE FUTURES PAST
(84 min) US
[watch trailer]

SUNDAY 10/27, 4:00 PM (SESSION 22)

Director: Susan Kucera
Producer: Jeff Bridges

Description:
Academy Award Winner, Jeff Bridges presents this beautifully photographed tour de force of original thinking on who we are and the environmental challenges we face. Bridges, alongside prominent scientists and authors, weaves evolution, emergence, entropy, dark ecology, and what some are calling the end of nature, into a story that helps us understand our place among the species of Earth’s household. The film upends our way of thinking and provides original insights into our subconscious motivations, the unintended consequences, what to do about our fossil slaves, and how our fundamental animal nature influences our future as humankind.
