As a first step towards the ideal of a resource-based economy, we're creating our own gift economy.
This is how it works.
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.
“To challenge economy is to challenge ourselves, which is far harder than to complain about the banking system.”
"Does anything turn out as we planned? Technology promised to free man from labour, to liberate women. But instead we made ourselves redundant. Our society does not need us anymore. But since we’re stuck in our cost-effective, mass-produced houses, we need to fight for full-time jobs to pay our rent."
"FUTURE MY LOVE challenges the viewer to examine and confront traditions and norms of society."
