A new feature environmental documentary produced by Sweetshop & Green, The Endangered Generation?, will make its debut at Melbourne International Film Festival (MIFF) in August.

Narrated by actress and producer Laura Dern, the film challenges the myth that the world is driven fundamentally by selfishness and competition by taking audiences on a positive, hopeful journey from the jungles of Panama to urban Indonesia that shows people reconnecting with both the environment and each other. The doc explores the importance of Indigenous languages and how art can not only change the way we see the world, but also work as a tool to create a shared story of human survival.

The Endangered Generation? is directed by Celeste Geer (Then the Wind Changed) and produced by Daniel Joyce and Gal Greenspan. Executive producers are Leila Conners and Sharlene George. The film is a Sweetshop & Green production, made in collaboration with Monash University and in association with Screen Australia, VicScreen, Melbourne International Film Festival Premiere Fund, the South Australian Film Corporation, Projector Films and VMLY&R. It will be released theatrically in Australia in early 2023 by Bonsai Films.

The Melbourne International Film Festival runs from August 4 through 21, with an online component from August 11 to 28. More information on the festival can be found here.
