FutureStates – This amazing cinematic project is a compelling and engaging series of 11 short films exploring “possible future scenarios through the prism of today’s global realities.” Creators of the films on FutureStates were asked where they think the US would be in 10, 25 or even 50 years from now, in the context of today’s burning issues (including politics, the environment, civil rights and others).
Apart from offering a beautifully designed interface, FutureStates’ offered HD quality films are absolutely superb and totally worth your spare time. See my personal favorite, PIA by Tanuj Chopra, which takes place in San Francisco in the year 2063. I strongly encourage you to explore all the eleven episodes here. I think it’s an innovative way of increasing our awareness about what’s really important for the near future.
