SYNOPSIS (Svenska, English, Español, Français, Italiano)

På väg hem genom ett öde industriområde börjar en mamma och hennes son prata
om vad som hände när drömmen om evig tillväxt kolliderade med Oljetoppen och
den följande nedgången i global oljeproduktion.

(short) During a bicycle trip in near future, a mother gets some basic questions from
her son on the epochal time of today. How did wereason when we took on debt and
consumed, rather than saved and invested for the benefit of his generation?

(longer) What answers do we owe to the generation born in the 21 century, whom will
grow up post peak oil, in a world characterized by shortages? A dialogue in near future
between a mother and her teenage son, about our dream of eternal economic growth,
our short term way of planning ahead and our devastating dependence on oil. The
content of this film is based on accurately controlled facts; Crude oil is not a renewable
resource. Our complex society relies on something as fragile as a one-time-gift frome
nature! In approxemately 2005 the global oil production peaked. And as nearly as in
2015 it is estimated that the total global oil production has steadily begun to decline.
Yet there is surprisingly little debate over the fact that we have built ourselves into a
society that demands the opposite, i.e, increasing assets if not to collapse. That our
growth dependent economy, our food production and our transportation system
requires cheep energy. Scriptwriters/directors/animators statement below.

De camino a casa en bicicleta por una zona industrial abandonada, una madre y su
comienzan a hablar sobre lo ocurrido cuando nuestro sueño de eterno crecimiento
económico se trunco´ tras el pico do, y el siguiente descenso, de la producción
mundial de petróleo. En una verosímil imagen de un futuro cercano, nuestros hijos nos
culpan debito a nuestro irresponsable estilo de vida actual.

Ciudades en transición en España


Une mère répond aux questions simples de son fils, bientôt adulte, sur les rêves passés
d’une croissance économique éternelle, sur la dépendance au pétrole des pays
industrialisés, et sur le fait que, plutôt qu’investis à préserver les générations futures, nous
continuons de vivre comme si demain n’existait pas.

Richard Heinberg: "La croissance mondiale a atteint ses limites"
Villes et Communautés en Transition

Una madre e suo figlio in bici per la strada di ritorno a casa. Attraversando una zona
industriale abbandonata, cominciano a parlare di quello che sia sucesso quando il
sogno di crecita economica eterna si scontrò con il picco petrolifero, e il sequente
declino mondiale di produzione di petrolio. In una vista perfettamente possibile del
prossimo futuro, i nostri figli ci rendono responsabili per il nostro modo di vita
irresponsabile di oggi.

Scriptwriters/directors/animators statement from an interview with
Green Film Network

1. There are issues and stories that need to be told. Why did you
choose to tell
this story?

To make this film was a way for us to study, to prepare mentally and to find out
more about how Peak Oil possibly will affect our and our childrens future prospects
and todays society in large.

Unfortunately, as early as this year - 2015 it is estimated that the total world oil
production has steadily begun to decline. Yet there is surprisingly little debate over
the fact that we have built ourselves into a society that demands the opposite, ie,
increasing assets, not to collapse. We made this film to make people understand;
even if we collectively will not have the creativity to confront the heavy energy driven
crisis on it's way, we will still have to make up some good answers to our children,
to the generation born in the 21 century, whom will grow up post Peak Oil, in a world
characterized by shortages. So the title of the film ("00-Baby Boom Child") refers to
the children of the huge generation born since 2000, like our own children, 2 and 8
years old today.

We are convinced that environmental issues will not be dealt with in a serious way
and the energy crisis will not be handled effectively by our politicians, as they are tied
to today's' totally unsustainable economic system, based on perpetual growth and
increasing debt. Learn more here. We made the film to argue that it is vital that we
take personal responsibility and act on grassroot level on this. There are no institutions
at this very moment that will provide food safety and so on.

2. A special focus on environment, like it is in Green Film Network's best
tradition: what do you think it is the role of cinema and specifically of your movie
to inform, make people think and change their incorrect habits in this field?

We live in a picture based culture so the cinema can certainly make a great difference
to inform, educate and make people reflect. When I learned about the subject of my film I
grasped that not only storytellers like me try to get messages across, - scientist and
specialist in the oil field have tried for decades to get us to understand that it takes 30-50
years to make a proper transition away from our society's dependence of fossil fuel. It's
nothing we can do overnight, without complete chaos. In fact, our huge amount of fictive
storytelling is stealing attention from the understanding of the Big Drama of our time -
how humanity will survive next century, as so many crises are gathering up – affecting our
life conditions. Like our food production, our transportations, today's economic system,
democracy etc. I hope my film can contribute to make people go and search more
