Unlike many blockbuster films that portray 2012 in a negative light, the documentary film 2012: Time for Change, directed by João Amorim, puts a positive spin on 2012 by viewing it as a catalyst for change.

Since the release of the film, the filmmakers and luminaries have continued their journeys, engaging and creating awareness of our world. Here?s a small list of what some of them are up to:
