Living In the Future's Past set out to 'take a look under the hood of humanity', transcending politics, borders, and cultures to provide fresh insights into our own subconscious motivations and their unintended consequences. With critical and audience acclaim, this message has been embraced by millions and continues to succeed in educating and inspiring countless more across the globe. Now, it is time to channel this enthusiasm and seize our opportunity to not just consider the implications of our collective actions, but to inspire one another and make an impact, one 'trim tab' at a time.
This film shows that no one can predict how major changes might emerge from the spontaneous actions of the many. What if the actions of the many could be coordinated, harnessed, and deployed to affect lasting change on our planet? Our vision is to activate a community-driven campaign for change by amplifying the interdisciplinary themes presented in the film.

The challenge and the joy in creating this documentary was in incorporating the philosophical ideas of object-oriented ontology in order to blur the lines between all things, whether those things are human, non -human, climate, timescales, or the built environment. While refusing to apply the common demand for a tidy conclusion, Living in the Future's Past gives us the necessary keys to activate our ability to reason and to engage our flexible minds in the face of oncoming challenges .
