Looking Forward (“Avenir” in French) is the charming and uplifting portrait of a collective in search of meaning, in the shadow of global warming. This 26-minute documentary tells the story of a group of people who get politically involved for the first time. In an attempt to get elected to the town council, they tackle the issues of climate crisis and democracy, which threaten their Alpine ski-resort, La Clusaz.
