Living in the Future's Past

**Academy Award-Winner** Jeff Bridges shares the screen with scientists and profound thinkers going beyond politics and borders to look under the hood of humanity, revealing eye-opening concepts about ourselves and our past, providing the keys to a better future. The film shows how no one can predict how major changes might emerge from the spontaneous actions of the many. How energy takes many forms as it moves through and animates everything. How, as we come to understand our true connection to all there is, we will need to redefine our expectations, not as what we will lose, but what we might gain by preparing for something different. Winner of Best Feature Documentary at the **Amsterdam Film Festival** and the **IndieFEST Film Awards**.
