Here's the new trailer (+ poster) for David A. Weiner's doc In Search of Tomorrow, found on YouTube:
In Search of Tomorrow is nostalgic journey through '80s sci-fi films, exploring their impact and relevance today, told by the artists who made them and by those who were inspired to turn their visions into reality. "This documentary will be our love-letter to the Sci-Fi films we grew up with; the films that dared to ask, 'what if?' and offered us a vision of future technology, society, and culture that simultaneously delighted, amazed and scared us." In Search of Tomorrow is directed by journalist / cinephile / filmmaker David A. Weiner, following up his other nostalgia documentary In Search of Darkness (about 80s horror films) previously. Produced by Jessica Dwyer and David A. Weiner; exec produced by Robin Block. The doc is now on Kickstarter to finish up post-production funding and move towards release. In Search of Tomorrow is expected to debut sometime later in 2020 or 2021. Stay tuned for more info. Who wants to see this already?
It is quite possible that this was the trashiest decade ever ...

1980s were my teenage and adolescent years and I don't remember any other decade being so trashy and full of kitsch and not only in music but with everything (music, clothes, hairstyles and what not). 1970s were less so prepairing terrain for 1980s and 1990s were already more dark. Yeah, I think I'm right, 1980s are mostly guilty for modern trash, camp, shlock and what not in our everyday culture...

I saw this on Kickstarter a few days ago! I hope there is some meat to this doc and its not just a supercut fiasco.

Oliver Harper is a beast! His previous doco on action schlock of the 80s was amazing and his channel's retrospectives are the best on the internet!
