THE  FUTURE  IS  PLANNING  A  FAREWELL  TOUR   


Director: Milton Moses Ginsberg

USA, 85 min

Several existential questions have taken on a sudden immediacy:  What wounds have we been inflicting on our planet?  Is humanity facing extinction in this very century?  Have we already turned corners from which there is no turning back? And have Sci-Fi films merely been offering us entertainment – or have they been accurately predicting the end of our existence? These ‘fantasy’ films have described our colonizing space, our bending time and our achieving immortality.  But they have also featured cyber-wars, pandemics, the rising of the oceans, the end of democracy, our replacement by robots and the biological transformation of the human species.
