Future My Love is a unique love story challenging our collective and personal utopias in search of freedom.
At the brink of losing the idealistic love of her life, filmmaker Maja Borg takes us on a poetic road trip through the financial collapse, exploring a radically different economic and social model proposed by 95-year-old futurist Jacque Fresco. How much freedom are we prepared to give to the ones we love? And how much responsibility are we ready to take for our society?
Carefully weaving a texture of archive footage, black and white Super 8 film, and colour HD, Borg poignantly depicts the universal struggle between our heads and hearts in times of big change.
SDI Research and Impact Insight:
Future My Love is a good example of our strategy to develop young creative talent, from local to international. Maja Borg (director) was an eca graduate (2006), then moved onto a Bridging the Gap 4 - White production (Ottica Zero), then completed a film for Channel 4, and returned to develop her first feature doc, which was also taken through Interdoc for financing. We are now using this film to research and test new forms and models of distribution.
