Future of Hope is a new feature length documentary about some of the good things that are happening in post banking crisis Iceland.
The film is in post production and its producers are hoping to release it on schedule in May this year…subject to the final funding being put in place.
In an effort to get the cash flowing, the producer and director (who are both British) have launched Future of Hope on the Kickstarter website and hope to raise USD 10,000 in 40 days. A tall order indeed.
They remain optimistic however, having secured ten percent of that amount in the first few days.
The film’s tagline is: “Hope is not a dream, but a way of making dreams a reality” and its promotional material describes is as:
“Focusing on the positive and inspirational things to come out of Iceland since the economic crash and intends to improve the reputation and image of Iceland on a global scale and also give hope to many Icelanders faced with an uncertain future.
“Representing Iceland as a fantastic place to invest in, live in and visit; ‘Future of Hope’ explores inspirational characters growing organically and promoting more self-sufficiency and less environmentally damaging imports of fresh produce, pioneers and world leaders in new renewable energy sources and those looking to re-invent Iceland as a means to promote positive change and show the rest of the world what can be achieved from the embers of a huge economic crash. From the greatest disasters comes the most inspiring change.”
