A story of resilience and hope in unprecedented times

Film in English, subtitled in French, duration 66 minutes

This film has already inspired the birth of two groups of Transition in Luxembourg who have initiated projects for a future that will enable truly sustainable communities: socially, environmentally, economically and culturally. The “In Transition 2.0” film is a journey into the heart of the Transition movement, gathering stories from around the world.  The viewer becomes a witness of ordinary people doing extraordinary things – communities that produce their own currency, create their own garden, and re-localise their economies, and establish energy-based cooperatives.  The model of transition towns is a social experiment, which with hope and ingenuity, responds to tomorrow’s uncertainties. The film was made in a positive and participatory way: funding was made possible thanks to a call on the Internet, volunteers have translated the film into 18 languages, and local filmmakers have been recruited to film the different sequences to avoid producing pollution.
The Transition movement is the result of the knowledge that: “If we wait for the governments, it will be too late. If we act as individuals, it will not be enough. It is only as a community that we can act in a timely and appropriate manner. ”
