With global protests on the rise, DEAR FUTURE CHILDREN is a film about the new generation at the heart of this seismic political shift. We will watch as Rayen protests for social justice in Chile, Pepper fights for democracy in Hong Kong and Hilda battles the devastating consequences of climate change in Uganda. Facing almost impossible odds and grappling with the staggering impact of their activism on their personal lives, we will be asking these three young women why they keep fighting.
A film about the next generation, made by the next generation.
Sound postproduction was a special challenge because we had to recreate the ambience on the protests directly at the front line. There are really lots of foley and sound effects in this sequences so the audience can feel like they are in the middle of this scenes.
It was also challenging to go this path on a documentary where you always have to think about realism and designing a dramaturgy.
