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.

The Outlook for Someday documentary is a Connected Media production for Maori Television. It was made with funding from New Zealand On Air.

The Outlook for Someday sustainability film challenge is a partnership between Connected Media, The Enviroschools Foundation and the Global Education Centre.

The project funding partners are the Ministry for the Environment, Ministry of Youth Development, Ministry of Education and Save The Children New Zealand.

The project sponsors are The Body Shop New Zealand, The Laptop Company and the Sustainable Business Network

The project supporters are New Zealand Post, Air New Zealand, New Zealand Listener, The Church, iServe, Trade Aid and Wanaka Wastebusters.
