Future Dreaming2015. Australia. 55 min.
Director: Kaya Finlayson Featuring: Dr David E Martin
Future Dreaming is the result of a chance meeting between two people on a boat in Antarctica. Against a backdrop of striking and dramatic Arctic landscapes, Finlayson’s film records a frank and inspired conversation with renowned thinker and Charlottesville resident Dr. David E. Martin to explore the past, present, and future of humanity. The documentary delves deep into the narratives that drive our economic, social, and political thinking and asks a simple question: what would humanity look like if we stopped imposing our models upon nature and instead chose to follow the same playbook as the ecosystem we find ourselves in? Discussion with filmmaker Kaya Finlayson and Dr. David E. Martin
