Future My Love (2013) Trailer
Trailer for Future My Love.
In the wake of yet another financial collapse, shouldn’t we look towards a drastically different social and economic model? One that would eradicate suffering, poverty and war rather than one that creates pain? Director Maja Borg, fresh with heartache after the loss of a first love, draws a parallel between the world’s economic system and human relationships with a dual narrative in this visionary documentary. Shot in both poetic 8mm black and white, and vibrant HD colour, the last days of love are reconstructed as we follow Borg on a road trip to the future. The Venus Project in Florida is the utopian home of 95-year-old futurist Jacque Fresco. Fresco’s work conceptualizes radical overhauls of technology and society, believing that it’s possible to create a self-sustaining resource-based economy rather than a monetary one. Future My Love shows us that as civilizations fall and lovers move apart, we can create as much pleasure as we can create pain.
