Living in the Future's Past Trailer

"Yeah, that's a metaphor for tuning in to what's already here." A stunning official trailer has debuted for a documentary film titled Living in the Future's Past, made by filmmaker Susan Kucera (For the Love of Tango), who partners with Jeff Bridges (who produced and features in the film), to ask: "What kind of future to we want to live in?" This doc is actually a beautifully photographed 4K "tour de force of original thinking on who we are and the life challenges we face." Sounds like a film that will massage your mind. The doc "upends our way of thinking and provides original insights into our subconscious motivations, the unintended consequences, and how our fundamental nature influences our future as Humankind." It will be showing only one night on the big screen, then available on VOD after that. This is a gorgeous trailer, I love the juxtaposition of all the footage and the kind of thoughts it already inspires. I really do want to see this.

Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Susan Kucera's doc Living in the Future's Past, from YouTube:

Living in the Future's Past is a beautifully photographed tour de force produced and presented by Academy Award Winner Jeff Bridges, who explores who we are, where we come from, how we think and why we do the things we do. Bridges shares the screen with profound thinkers, scientists, and a dazzling array of the Earth's creatures to reveal profound concepts about ourselves and our future in ways that have never been presented quite like this on film before. Living in the Future's Past is directed by award-winning filmmaker Susan Kucera, director of the documentaries Trading on Thin Air, Breath of Life, and For the Love of Tango previously. Living in the Future's Past will show on the big screen for only one night, nationwide on Tuesday, October 9th (with additional screenings in select locations) - check for theater listings here. The limited release will include an on-screen discussion and commentary with Bridges and the film's collaborators - only to be seen in cinemas. For more info, visit the film's official website.

Of course, it looks and sounds good. However, we live in times when being amazed is just not enough anymore. Existing problems might be the only thing that should amaze us all, but I don't think that's true for enough people ...

" I thought the narration was badly written " -- coming from someone who used the wrong "its" immediately prior, that's rather rich, Bo.

Looks very solid. I like the concept of talking about us a humans and not groups.

Bo, you sure did glean a lot of insight out of one little trailer. How can you tell the movie isn't "living up to its ideas" from this?

I didn't "denigrate" or criticize you. When I watch a trailer, it's because I want to check out the subject matter, and if it's an enjoyable trailer. I've seen trailers that made me interested in the movie, and I'll see it, and be very disappointed. Everyone has. But I usually wait to see the movie to pass judgement on it. If the trailer of this movie showed you that this wasn't necessarily your cup of tea, that's fine, but that's a different thing than saying the entire movie didn't live up to it's own ideas. The old adage to not judge a book by it's cover comes to mind.

I am too a big fan of Jeff Bridges. But in all honesty, he ain't Sir Patrick Stewart or Morgan Freeman when it comes to voice over.
