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 reveal 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 might 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.

Featuring interviews with Dr. Piers Sellers (Director of the Earth Science Division at NASA, Meteorologist and Astronaut), Wesley Clark (General, US Army (ret.)), former NATO Supreme Allied Commander),Dr. Leonard Mlodinow (Physicist and Author, ‘Elastic: Flexible Thinking in a time of Change’) Dr. Ruth Gates, (Marine Biologist), Mark Plotkin, (Ethnobotanist), Dr. Bruce Hood, (Developmental Psychologist, Author, The Self Illusion)

"A stunning environmental documentary."

Presents philosophical, scientific, easily implementable, and potentially course-rerouting fixes.”
-Entertainment Weekly

"Not your typical documentary vision of doom and gloom on the environment...Managed to find that ever elusive happy medium on a polarizing subject while retaining intellectual honesty...Well-paced and highly thought-provoking throughout...Will spark a much more fruitful discussion on a vitally important problem which affects us all"
-The 405
