Synopsis: 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… “Future of Hope” is a documentary film following individuals that strive to change the world of consumerism, a system of credit and debt that the Icelandic economy was built upon for the past 10 years or more. Focusing on sustainable developments in organic farming, business, innovation, renewable energy and the environment – filled with positivity and emotion as we are taken on a story of struggle, determination and most importantly hope. From the midnight sun, to dark winters lit only by the snow, from geysers to volcanoes, this movie truly explores the magnificent country of Iceland. 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.
