New World is an environmental road movie.
The director travelled across France for four years, looking for people and local initiatives which bring hope for a more cohesive society, a better world for his two children.
From collective intelligence to circular economy, local currencies to the idea of a basic income, this film is our guide on the discovery of this new world.

Director's statement

As a father of two young children, the director considered their future and the prospects provided by society.
Against a backdrop of gloomy rhetoric, frequent pessimism, widespread crisis, he wanted to outline a positive vision, a new outlook to “re-engage” attention to societal development.
He decided to focus on promising experiments and initiatives, and to highlight opinions and approaches in place “here and now”.

Très bon film que chacun devrait voir, et surtout les pessimistes qui ne voient aucune alternative alors que les alternatives sont là et en nombre !

J’ai beaucoup apprécié la musique de l’artiste Marianne Aya Omac et ses choristes. Quelques intervenants intéressants mais lorsqu’on s’intéresse déjà au sujet on à l’impression qu’il y a pas mal de redites tout au long du film.

Documentaire intéressant à sa date de sortie en 2013. Le visionner 5 ans plus tard lui fait perdre beaucoup de son intérêt.
