AlterNativas: Construyendo futuros posibles (AlterNatives: Building possible futures) is a documentary about transition initiatives and ecosocial regeneration; a collective project to make visible transformative experiences in our geographies and inspire other possible futures.
“Alternatives”, from Latin Alter (other) and Nativus (born), refers to the search for new realities, and new origins. This is the starting point for this documentary project: showing innovative initiatives of socio-ecological transition. Diverse experiences provide responses to the worldwide systemic crisis (energetic, economic, ecological, social, cultural and epistemic) that we are suffering.
ALTER NATIVES is a collaborative film that seeks to address specific questions from a proactive approach. How can we cope with this situation and adapt to a changing reality? What individual and collective alternatives are being put in place in order to transition towards resilient communities and more sustainable lifestyles? What new stories and experiences can shape the future of our neighbourhoods, towns and cities? How can we start walking towards a new economy that promotes social justice and harmony for our planet and ourselves? This documentary feature aims to answer all of these questions by showing initiatives from diverse fields that can inspire people to take action.
A bit like an updated, more radical version of Tomorrow, but all set in Spain. A powerful, inspirational, must-see film. Not to be missed! — Josef Davies-Coates, United Diversity Bridport
