Living in the Future’s Past

Can looking at evolution help us predict the future of humanity?” – Jeff Bridges

Friday Harbor Film Festival invites you to a free screening of the award winning documentary, Living in the Future’s Past narrated by Academy Award winner Jeff Bridges on Friday, May 3rd at 7:00 pm at Brickworks.

In this beautifully photographed tour de force of original thinking, Academy Award winner, Jeff Bridges shares the screen with scientists, profound thinkers and a dazzling array of Earth’s living creatures to revel eye-opening concepts about ourselves and our past, providing fresh insights into our subconscious motivations and their unintended consequences.

Living in the Future’s Past shows how no one can predict how major changes emerge from the spontaneous actions of the many. How energy takes many forms as it moves through and animates everything. How, as we come to understand our true connection to all there is, we will need to redefine our expectations, not as what we will lose, but what we might gain by preparing for something different “What kind of future would you like to see?”

Q&A discussion with Director Susan Kucera via Skype to follow screening.

Preceding the film, representatives of the Center for Whale Research will present a trailer for their new film, “Dammed to Extinction”, about the 4 obsolete dams that choke off thousands of miles of rivers in Washington state. Removing them saves money, salmon and Orcas.
