Australian filmmaker Damon Gameau has high hopes for the future of the planet. He eloquently reveals them in his award-winning 2019 environmental documentary 2040, which tonight receives its U.S. network premiere on The CW in celebration of Earth Day 2020. Told through the lens of a love letter to his then four-year-old daughter Velvet, Gameau explores the impact of climate change on our environment and the detrimental domino effects to ecosystems globally. Instead of highlighting a dystopian future, through his innovative storytelling Gameau paints the picture of a utopian 2040. His only rule - - everything used to create that future space must currently exist. It's something he calls "fact-based dreaming" and is delivered perfectly by the film's riveting visuals.
