‘DEMAIN’ Le Film
2016 César Award for Best Documentary.
Showing solutions, telling a feel-good story… this may be the best way to solve the ecological, economic, and social crises that our countries are going through. After a special briefing for the journal Nature announced the possible extinction of a part of mankind before the end of the 21st century, filmmakers Cyril Dion and Mélanie Laurent carried out an investigation in ten different countries to figure out what may lead to this disaster and above all how to avoid it.
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…

Strode Theatre is using ‘DEMAIN’ to launch their new environmental policy, and will use surplus revenue from this film as a seed-fund towards the costs of supporting the theatre to transition from single-use plastics to recyclable/biodegradable materials.
The film will be followed by a panel supported discussion. And that’s not all because ‘DEMAIN’ is just the first part of the theatre’s Sustainable Narratives film triptych… and if you book at the same time to see all three films (‘The Islands and the Whales’ and ‘Cowspiracy’) you can save money to with £4.50 off the total price.
