Banal and disappointing
14 February 2016 | by alexandros-15See all my reviews

I rarely have the time to write reviews lately even though i would love to.

Avid movie goer and supporter of zero carbon economies, I felt i wasted my time watching Demain, so warning others motivated me to write this one.

The first three chapters (agriculture, energy, economy) are bearable because they are in the right direction, including some good interviews such as with Jeremy Rifkin, yet they are broadly banal because they mostly project well known, and often old, stories as something revelatory, new and the future.

The European Union has doubled from 8% to 16% in the last ten years the contribution of renewables to the energy mix, with many countries already by 2014 having achieved the 20% target which is supposed to be achieved by 2020. Did we really need pictures of wind farms in Denmark to find out that there is an alternative future?

In the first three chapters, my impression was the creators of the movie felt they had just discovered "America".

The last two chapters (democracy and education) were worse, trying to talk about hugely complex issues with amateuristic banality and simplifications, e.g the interviewer asks a teacher in Finland about what the projected as ground breaking new teaching techniques are to hear as a response that their objective is to promote tolerance.

Finally, i found the way the film was presented as a bit manipulative with all the pictures about the alternative futures being framed in idealistic settings, shot in sunny days, beautiful sunsets, or sitting by the sea on a warm summer day.

I guess in the real world it does rain too sometimes, and to be credible and avoid descending into propaganda one has also to address the challenges too. I feel a good documentary should encourage debate and present different views. Nothing of this here.

I agree with the direction of the movie: urban farming, low or zero carbon economies, local community economies to balance the excesses of global capitalism, my views too. In short, promoting more resilient societies in an increasingly globalised world.

My disappointment comes from my belief that misguided efforts to popularise alternative futures and misplaced enthusiasm could do more harm than good, creating cheap expectations that everything is possible and fast, generating simplistic readings of a complex world, and offering cheap optimism where they should encourage personal responsibility. As Jan Techau wrote recently: If you rely on the rage of the people more than on the merits of your own idea, then your case is weak.

Alternative futures to be sustainable require dialogue between competing social interests not competing activisms each glorifying its own alternative.
