THE OUTLOOK FOR SOMEDAY
The documentary climax of a sustainability film challenge for young New Zealanders
Written and presented by Kiritapu Allan
Produced and directed by David Jacobs
The Outlook for Someday is a sustainability film challenge launched in 2007. Young New Zealanders up to the age of 20 made short films about how they see the future unfolding.
Kiritapu Allan joins five of the winning film-makers, who lay out some challenges and solutions as they show their films to some of Aotearoa New Zealand’s finest and most influential people from the worlds of hip-hop and art, politics, advertising and film: Prime Minister Helen Clark, Leader of The Opposition John Key, the Maori King Tuheitia Paki, Oscar nominee Keisha Castle-Hughes, hip-hop pioneer DLT and advertising heavyweight Toby Talbot.
The winning films featured in this documentary form a collection of quirky, moving and challenging short films from around the country. They range from a rap music video to an advertisement set in the future.
The films inspire the film-makers and those they meet with to engage in lively dialogue about New Zealand’s ambitions to be a sustainable nation.
