Damon Gameau on Radical Hope

Soma Collective Podcast

Damon Gameau is an award winning film director, producer, storyteller, author and activist. In 2015, he released his debut feature documentary That Sugar Film, which became the highest grossing Australian documentary of all time. It's been released in over 25 territories and picked up a host of awards around the world. His accompanying campaign book, That Sugar Book, was a best seller in Australia, has been published in 20 countries and translated into 8 languages. Damon’s latest masterpiece is the hybrid feature documentary 2040 which went on to become one of the highest grossing Australian documentaries of all time. 2040 was motivated by Damons concerns about the planet his 4-year-old daughter would inherit, Damon embarked on a global journey to meet innovators and changemakers in the areas of economics, technology, civil society, agriculture, education and sustainability. Drawing on their expertise, he sought to identify the best solutions, available to us now, that would help improve the health of our planet and the societies that operate within it. From marine permaculture to decentralised renewable energy projects, he discovered that people all over the world are taking matters into their own hands. This journey is the central premise for the documentary ‘2040’, a story of hope that looks at the very real possibility that humanity could reverse global warming and improve the lives of every living thing in the process. It is a positive vision of what ‘could be’, instead of the dystopian future we are so often presented. In this episode we sit down with Damon in front of a live audience in the Soma dome and explored his remarkable personal journey and the rising tide of innovative change that is taking place across the planet, much of which we never hear about. Damon calls upon our need for radical hope and radical regenerative action to restore balance to our precious planet and all those beings who share it.

77. 2021: Approaching regenerative tipping points? With award-winning film maker, Damon Gameau

The RegenNarration

Welcome to a new year of The RegenNarration. And what a year it’s shaping up to be. But before we get into that, I wanted to take a brief moment here to admit to feeling a little flat. And by extension, to explain the delayed start to the podcast this year. Some sad and in some ways seismic changes have consumed me in recent times. And really, these changes relate to everything this podcast is about. So this episode starts on that note, before leading in to a conversation spanning a spectrum of spectacular efforts to regenerate the systems and stories we live by.Kind enough to join me in this sweeping primer for the year is friend, supporter of the podcast, and masterfully accomplished director of That Sugar Film and 2040, Damon Gameau. We talk about some of what’s on, what’s coming on, and how we’re seeing the growing momentum towards regenerative tipping points. Dedicated to Dad.Title slide pic: Damon Gameau (supplied).
