Living in the Future's Past

Susan Kucera
United States, 2018, 84 min.

In English.
This film is family friendly.

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, their unintended consequences, what to do about our fossil slaves, and how our fundamental animal nature influences our future as Humankind.

Director's Statement

"Living in the Future's Past is an invitation to everyone to learn about themes that are often overlooked in our cultural dialogue, but are necessary keys to the future that we desire for our children. Living in the Future's Past is a metaphor for tuning in to what is already here." -- Jeff Bridges.

Winner of the Gold United Nations award for "Outstanding Achievement in International Communications which best exemplifies the ideals and goals of the United Nations"
