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 her life, filmmaker Maja Borg takes us on a poetic road trip through the 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 colour HD, Borg poignantly depicts the universal struggle between our heads and hearts in times of big change.
“To challenge economy is to challenge ourselves, which is far harder than to complain about the banking system.”
Press release: Kinosmith to distribute I AM BREATHING and FUTURE MY LOVE in Canada
Toronto – Kinosmith takes on Maja Borg's futuristic and poetic essay FUTURE MY LOVE, nominated at EIFF for the Michael Powell Award for the best British film, which screens in the Rulebreakers and Innovators section at Hot Docs, North America's largest documentary festival. It's centred around nonagenarian futurist Jacque Fresco's ideas about a resource-based economy. The film has been critically appraised as "Adam Curtis meets Star Trek" (Mark Cousins) and is screening widely in festivals, from Poland to Mexico.
Robin Smith, CEO of Kinosmith, said: "FUTURE MY LOVE is one of the most thought-provoking films I have come across – it's a touching meditation on the future and why we don't change. It deals with big ideas from a very personal perspective – exactly what we need right now."

"Does anything turn out as we planned? Technology promised to free man from labour, to liberate women. But instead we made ourselves redundant. Our society does not need us anymore. But since we’re stuck in our cost-effective, mass-produced houses, we need to fight for full-time jobs to pay our rent."
