June 30 – WFF’s WOODSTOCK IN THE CITY SERIES, presents
FUTURESTATES – a compilation of shorts
How will Americans live in the 21st century? Which political and social issues will have dire consequences in 10 or 20 years? On Wednesday, June 30th, at 7:30PM at 92Y Tribeca, the Woodstock Film Festival and 92Y Tribeca are proud to present five inspired short films, created by visionary independent filmmakers (including WFF alum Tze Chun), that comment on our contemporary world by depicting a series of dystopian never-never lands of the near future.
Films will include:
Mister Green by Greg Pak won the Best Short Film Award at the Sci Fi London Film Festival.
The Rise by Garret Williams features an older couple that must forego their dreams of retirement.
Silver Sling by WFF Alum, Tze Chun has corporations offering to pay for chemically accelerated surrogate births.
Tent City by Aldo Velasco takes place in a world where housing is granted only to the powerful.
Tia And Marco by Annie J. Howell shows us a world in which all American citizens in good health are required to serve one year in a government job.
A Q&A with participating filmmakers will follow the screening.
FUTURESTATES is a co-production of the Independent Television Service (ITVS)
