Captivating Documentary “Tomorrow’s Power” Challenges Social Justice Discussions
Documentary filmmaker and activist Amy Miller premiered her most recent award-winning film TOMORROW’S POWER at the RIDM – Montreal International Documentary Festival.
“Our productions delve into contemporary topics that challenge society’s status quo,” says producer Byron A. Martin. “It is a great honor to have our doc featured at the forward-thinking festival that is the RIDM”.
Tomorrow’s Power was recently awarded the Best Documentary Feature Film Award at the Sydney World Film Festival. The hard-hitting film will be screening as part of the State of the World section of this year’s festival.
Local activists in Gaza, Germany, and Colombia challenge fossil-fuel dependency and power structures in a struggle for social and climate justice. Tomorrow’s Power showcases three communities around the world and their responses to economic and environmental emergencies. In the war-torn, oil-rich Arauca province in Colombia, communities have been building a peace process from the bottom up. In Germany, activists are pushing the country to fully divest from fossil-fuel extraction and complete its transition to renewable energy. In Gaza, health practitioners harness solar power to battle daily life-threatening energy blackouts in hospitals.
“Tomorrow’s Power will be the much-needed film to explain our worldwide addiction to fossil fuels and its relationship to climate change, but it will also empower and motivate: It will inspire its viewers to work hard and persist even in the face of massive obstacles, setbacks and failures,” says director Amy Miller.
