FUTURE OF HOPE

A Film by Henry Bateman & Heather Millard

This feature-length documentary film tells the story of a few Icelandic people, not afraid to stand out from the crowd, who are taking a different path towards a more sustainable future.

Academics, Politicians, Farmers, Scientists and Visionaries all demonstrate how the isolated country of Iceland could – with a little help from their friends – become not only a testing ground for new technologies but also a completely sustainable ecosystem.
Punctuated with beautiful photography and a rousing soundtrack from Ampop frontman Biggi Hilmars and featuring a new song by Damien Rice – Future of Hope is an inspiration for a changing world.

A perfect insight into the country of Iceland, the landscapes and the people.

Over the past 20 years we have seen a growing realization that the current model for society and culture is unsustainable. We have been living beyond our means… A character driven documentary following individuals that strive to change the world of consumerism, a system of credit and debt. Focusing on sustainable developments in nature, organic farming, business, innovation and renewable energy – filled with positivity and emotion as we are taken on a story of struggle, determination and most importantly…hope. ‘Future of Hope’ takes you on a journey from the history to the present and even into the future of a new and sustainable Iceland…
