Join us on e-flux Video & Film for an online screening of Maja Borg’s Future My Love (2012), streaming from Wednesday, June 23 through Tuesday, July 6, 2021.

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 their life, filmmaker Maja Borg takes us on a poetic road trip through the 2008 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 color HD, Borg poignantly depicts the universal struggle between our heads and hearts in times of radical change.

Future My Love is presented here as one of four films in Part One | Socio-Economic Systems (Hatred for Capitalism), the first of four programs in the online series Me, You, and Everyone We Know: Interrelationality, Alterity, Globalization programmed by Irmgard Emmelhainz for e-flux Video & Film. The series will run in four thematic parts from June 23 through August 18, 2021. Each part will include a two-week group screening, and a live discussion.
