Jeff Bridges says: “LIVING IN THE FUTURES PAST is a metaphor for what’s already here. Our movie takes a good look under the hood of humanity. It incorporates elements of evolution, emergence, energy, psychology, to show how these effect our environment, our planet. It’s not fear that should drive us to act. It’s love. Like Teddy Roosevelt said “Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.”

Living in the Future’s Past is a bright and intellectually honest film,” says Director Susan Kucera. “As Jeff says in the film “it all sounds pretty trippy, and it is” but the film allows us to get friendly with our natural ability to reason.”

Senior Vice President of Programming for Trafalgar Releasing, Kymberli Frueh, comments: “With so much conversation around conservation and what we can do personally to protect our environment for future generations, this is a perfect social cause documentary that is meant to educate, inspire and create dialogue among attendees on a community level at local cinemas.”

Managing Director / CEO of Vision Films Lise Romanoff says: “‘This documentary doesn’t fall into the same polarizing traps of many films that address the issues of humanity and the environment and offers a completely fresh and unique point of view that we are thrilled to be bringing to life for audiences nationwide.”
