Finally I would add that this film is nearly 3 years old now and while I didn’t mind paying to rent it as I am deeply interested in social change I doubt even as a gift I could get many people I know to sit down and watch. It seems that it should be released for streaming freely now. I understand that everything has production costs but the information isn’t getting any newer and spreading the message through any means possible really should be the goal.
Our University would like to purchase three copies of this DVD. Can you please tell me how to change the default quantity of one?
Thanks and Regards
There should be comments at the end of the film explaining this and maybe what have happend since the films release in the world (to get the points in the film linked with reality).
Thanks for the awesome work!
Thanks for getting in touch. Just emailed you to find out what happened.
I watched the whole film on svtplay.
Beautiful peace it is.
I usually like the fully quiet films the best, but this had the same quality to it, well done!
I love the idea of another society. Im 46 now and I always strived this way, since a little kid I felt detached from society, not that I couldnt participate if I wanted, I just felt it was wrong, still do.
I always helped even at times it meant I had something and ended up with nothing, still do, and its worth it, every time!
So just a simple comment from a non film-knowledgeble person.
Keep up the good work!
All I can say is thank you for creating this fantastic piece of art, very inspiring and really needed!
Many thanks for your feedback, and sorry you didn’t get to ask your question at the screening. There are many “solution films” to be made in this subject area, and of course change coming from communities themselves is a vital part of the equation. I think it’s interesting but also not surprising why Jacque provokes quite a few people, but I’d be careful not to equate his views with a corporation such as Monsanto; technological advance, such as GM food within the monetary/capitalist system can often be (as the film does point out) absolutely scary and destructive – for the environment, for people. Rather than “dissenting” with Jacque on camera, I think Maja does manage to question the focus on technology, and bring in a hugely important element to the debate, which is our emotional side and how we might relate to each other in such a future.
I saw Future My Love in Glasgow last night, but wasn’t time to ask the question I had in mind during the discussion afterwards. My feelings about the film are very mixed, although visually very interesting and thematically provocative, I came away feeling annoyed rather than inspired.
To me the main weakness in the film was the attention given to Jacques whose views of the “solution” were based on technology, science, design and control rather than grassroots change from communities themselves. Some of what he said in relation to having the technology to feed the world had disturbing echoes of the message being promoted by Monsanto, that the only way we can feed the world is through technological intervention in our food-chain, ie GM food. At a time of great ecological crisis, we need to be promoting simple solutions and alternatives that rely on a closer affinity to the natural world, less reliant on technology rather than more. As someone who works in a community based food project and campaigns on environmental justice issues, I felt the lack of a challenge or dissenting voice to much of what Jacques said weakened the film considerably.
By the way, you might be interested in this film too, by friends of ours: http://thehumanscale.dk/
I would like to see a version that engages the visitor as a creator themselves. That presents Jacque’s work as just one mans work alongside others. Otherwise people form the impression that Jacque is a dictator of some kind who wants to be the designer of our lives. Not the truth which is far more beautiful.
Sorry but there was only one minute between your last two messages… give us a chance! I believe my colleague Demelza already got in touch with you regarding the cinema suggestions you sent two weeks ago.
Regarding your proposal for the production of a new movie, I’m not sure what you’re referring to. Who exactly did you contact?
