Basilica Hudson returns to the Greenville Drive-In for our fourth installment of the Basilica Non-Fiction Screening Series with 2040 (92 minutes).

This event is free, with a suggested donation of $15 at the box office or made online to help sustain Basilica Hudson and support filmmakers.

Drawing on the best minds from around the world to focus on climate, economics, technology, civil society, agriculture and sustainability, 2040 maps out a pathway for change that can lead us to a more ecologically sustainable and equitable future.
​​
​​Motivated by his 4-year-old daughter and concern for the planet she will inherit, director Damon Gameau embarks on a global journey to meet the innovators and change makers pioneering the best solutions already available to us today to improve the health of our planet and societies. Inspired by these discoveries and guided by the many children he consults with along the way, Damon interweaves dramatic sequences and high-end visual effects to conjure a positive portrait of what ‘could be’ instead of the current dystopian future we are so often presented.

ABOUT THE BASILICA NON-FICTION SCREENING SERIES

This screening is part of Basilica Hudson’s Basilica Non-Fiction Screening Series, which explores the documentary genre through screenings and dialogue with visiting directors. Despite the fact that our screening room has temporarily closed due to COVID-19 restrictions, we remain committed to bringing independent film to the Hudson Valley. Basilica Hudson is thrilled to partner with the Greenville Drive-In to move the Basilica Non-Fiction Screening Series OUTDOORS for 2021.

Now in its 10th year, Basilica’s film program has displayed a long-standing commitment to bringing independent and innovative voices in film to the Hudson waterfront, through new and repertory film and video art, often with filmmakers and special guests in conversation.

This free screening is made possible by Leigh and Dwight of the Greenville Drive-in. Basilica Hudson’s Film and Media program is generously supported, in part, by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
