Jaswant, Santa Barbara, Baker discussed on Sunday Sitdown with Willie Geist

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

So when you look over the horizon now and what else you'd like to do done the big budget stuff. You did ironman your icon from the big lebowski this movie's gonna do well, it's or other stuff out there. You haven't done that. The try. He's a couple of things, you know. And I've been trying to work together for about thirty years now. We have such a great time on the big without. I'm not big little boy, Baker boys. Yeah, but we've got something in the in the kit bag here we might be able to pull off pretty soon. I've been trying to get this going for about twenty years, but we we might get that going and you really can't see over that horizon was coming man. You know, you don't strike me as a guy who has set and planned out his career. At this point. I want to be here this one take it as it comes pretty much pretty much kind of, you know, counterpuncher you know, get things coming to me and. You know, try to as Jaswant saying, try to, you know, pass by as many as I can, and then everyone's awhile one on this. Get me off the the movie is awesome. People are going to love it. Thank you so much, so so things yet. It's great. And you know what I would love to talk about, of course is I've got another film coming out. Yes. Yes. Called living in the futures past. Okay. And that's all about climate change? Sure. And the title of that movie living in the futures past is really a metaphor for tuning into what's already already. Here. We are living in the futures past right now and we, it's a film about well about all of us in about our rapidly changing world. And you know, we face big challenges is a species here on our planet, and but we also have keys on how to. Address these challenges in a wise fashion. And that's really what the the movies about is taking a look at how do we move with these keys that we already know and you know, move into the future wisely doing that. You really takes kind of the long view which is both forward and back. So our movie explorers of evolution. Why are we responding to these challenges the way we are? And I'm, I'm really glad really proud of that film. I think it's it's really good one with all the the scientific consensus about climate change that is happening, and the data shows that the temperature rising. Why do you think it's so hard for that issue? Despite the best efforts of so many people, including big stars, who advocate you to punch through in the American consciousness and say, this is an emergency? Yeah. Well, it's kind of how we're wired, you know, we are. We don't have that farsighted thing and it's tough. We, we love immediate gratification. We really. Had been. I know I am addicted to comfort, you know? So anything that's a little bit different. We we, we resist that, you know, oddly enough after we made the film, I experienced some climate change myself as you probably know California's been particularly crispy this year. Well, fine over and in Santa Barbara, we had a huge wildfire and we had just. Perfected this home that we had been working on for three years and moved in there for a couple of months. The fire didn't get us, but the fire burned all the growth on the mountains. And here comes a big rain. And here comes the money. Terrible debris flow. Wiped our house out, killed over twenty people. We got rescued by helicopter. Did you really have that kind of brings the whole climate change thing? I guess. So I, I was originally inspired, you know, my dad with sea hunt..

Coming up next
