Dear Future Children follows the lives and stories of three young activists from around the world.
Each young woman grapples with the struggles of growing up under repression and capitalism while fighting for change.The title itself “Dear Future Children” is the introduction to a letter that the activists want to deliver to the future generations. They want to make an honest account of their success, struggles and motivations.
It’s rare for young filmmakers to achieve such a powerful and moving piece of art—as well as to film and distribute it across the world on a crowdfunded budget.
I was struck by the impressive images in the film. It captures the emotion of the film’s subjects, and gives intimate insights into their lives and motivations.
All three of them are inspiring and show that every form of resistance makes a difference.
Dear Future Children gives us a wider view of activism across the world and inspires hope for future generations.
The filmmakers have done a brilliant job at capturing the vibrancy of activism—and the very real danger these young people face every day.
It’s a powerful insight into the world of resistance.
Dear Future Children is in cinemas from 19th November dearfuturechildren.com/uktickets
