Regenerating Australia is a 17-minute short film by the team behind the high-impact feature documentaries 2040 and That Sugar Film. It's based on a four-month interview process with a diverse group of Australians who shared their hopes and dreams for the country’s future.
Set on New Year’s Eve of December 2029, a news anchor is ending the nightly bulletin with a look back at the decade ‘that could be.’ A decade that saw Australia transition to a fairer, cleaner, more community-focused economy.
The film explores regeneration – putting life at the centre of every action and decision, and bringing vitality and renewed growth to our communities and ecosystems.
