What kind of future to we want to live in? Jeff Bridges presents this beautifully photographed 4K tour de force of original thinking on who we are and the life challenges we face. This film upends our way of thinking and provides original insights into our subconscious motivations, the unintended consequences, and how our fundamental nature influences our future as mankind.
"Much like "The Inside Job" did for the world of finance, "Living in the Future's Past" takes a more intellectual path to address this subject. The goal of this film is to help its audience truly understand the core issues we face as an interconnected world on the brink of something massively devastating. At the most basic level, that core issue is the consumption of energy. Humans need energy to live. Their fuel is food, and it takes energy to grow food, whether it be from more food to feed the animals we eat, fossil fuels to run the tractors and other machinery needed to grow plants, or the very manpower and calorie expenditure it takes for a laborer to produce goods. Everything is energy. Our economy, our currency, microwaves, and penguins, everything can be broken down to surplusses and deficits of energy. This movie also delves into our basic instincts as animals, including the way we think, and why those processes contribute to the ongoing crisis related to climate change. It also investigates how we have a psychological tendency towards tribalism, and how we look for ways to place blame on others to alleviate our own guilt about these issues. It looks at how we have a tendency to search for information that confirms our personal preexisting biases and how we often ignore any alternate ways of thinking that challenge those inclinations." - Thank you LOLO
