What does a good, successful life look like? Is another kind of life even possible? This is a film about looking forward without fear, about being connected through music, nature and society, about people with different ideas but one overriding common goal, to create a world that’s future-ready.
BUT BEAUTIFUL features people from all walks of life: Women with no education building solar devices for villages the world over, a permaculture visionary on La Palma who wants to turn wastelands green, a forester developing the cleanest houses in the world; a spiritual leader with important messages whose Tibetan sister is a passionate ally for young people and a young jazz trio, an experienced pianist and a soulful Colombian singer, all attempting to convey the sound of beauty.
Everything is going to be OK. But for Erwin Wagenhofer, it’s not that easy.
In BUT BEAUTIFUL he searches out beauty and goodness while honoring the people who are breaking new ground.
Despite all the crisis narratives, nothing is lost.
