'Crossing the Lines' in Glasgow

Crossing the Line, Glasgow Film Festival's experimental film strand is coming to the Glasgow Film Theatre. They have selected FUTURE MY LOVE for an exclusive one-off screening on 2 December. Here's their announcement:

"Fresh from critically acclaimed screenings at this year’s EIFF, Maja Borg’s poetic ‘experimental documentary’ takes us on a road trip through the financial collapse, exploring a radically different economic and social model proposed by sprightly ninety-five-year-old futurist Jacque Fresco. Personalising this journey by also exploring the end of her romantic relationship, Borg asks: 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 archive footage, black and white Super 8 film, and colour HD, this is a poignant depiction of the universal struggle between our heads and hearts in times of big change. We're delighted that director Maja Borg will introduce and take part in a Q&A following this screening."

First reactions

In the February 2013 edition of Dazed and Confused, "cinephile extraordinaire" Mark Cousins says about FUTURE MY LOVE:

“Maja’s Future My Love is a passionate, inventive epistle about the end of days. It’s a rare, lovely, generous, caring, hurt, recovering film, like Adam Curtis meets Star Trek. I loved it.”

The film had its world premiere at the Edinburgh International Film Festival, in competition for the Michael Powell Award for the best British film. Chris Fujiwara, Artistic Director of EIFF, called it a "visionary documentary". 

Influential Scottish magazine The Skinny has given the film four stars (the highest rating among their EIFF reviews):

"Complimented by a resonant orchestral score and feather-soft narration, Future My Love is beautiful, but never flimsy. While its originality resides in the suggestion we are married to damaging societal structures, its ambition lies in its faith we would ever consider a divorce."

Also by The Skinny, introducing an additional interview:

"So emerged Maja Borg’s film of future and economy, with honesty clasped to its core. Surely reason enough to applaud. But the Swedish filmmaker has also sacrificed her own experiences with love on truth’s insatiable altar to further illuminate matters."

There have been dozens of Tweets following the world premiere, all very positive, such as this one from @robertoalien:

"Maja Borg's @FutureMyLove beautiful, moving, poetic, important @edfilmfest like it, love it, share it, retweet it!"
