YMCA’s Young Leaders will be hosting a movie fundraiser tomorrow for everyone to enjoy.

Young Leader Kelsie Mitchell said the screening of the movie 2040 will be a chance for young people and their families to enjoy a night at the cinema.

The film is by award-winning director Damon Gameau (That Sugar Film) as he embarks on a journey to explore what the future could look like by the year 2040 if we simply embraced the best solutions already available to us to improve our planet and shifted them rapidly into the mainstream. 

Structured as a visual letter to his four-year-old daughter, Damon blends traditional documentary with dramatised sequences and high-end visual effects to create a vision board of how these solutions could regenerate the world for future generations.

The YMCA’s Young Leaders have been discussing climate change and the impact on their future.

Kelsie said the film tries to paint a positive picture.

“It describes how the future could be and as we are the next generation we would like to see a more positive world,” she said.

“The money raised will go back into help us host events for the youth of Broken Hill.

“We would love to see as many people there as possible; whether it’s children and their families or friends.”

Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for those under 18.
