Inventing the Future

What might the world look like after capitalism? Following in the footsteps of left accelerationist academics Nick Srnicek and Alex Williams, the authors of the utopian manifesto Inventing the Future, the second feature film from the Canadian experimental director Isiah Medina attempts to outline the contours of the coming society: the cultural and ethical status of labour has been destroyed, every human being receives a universal basic income, and even the possibility of working is limited by the state. Deploying the avant-garde montage techniques used by Jean-Luc Godard and the Soviet directors of the 1920s, Medina develops the revolutionary potential of digital cinema and calls for an active role on the part of the viewer, without which it is impossible to analyse the situation, empower the imagination and take political action.

Isiah Medina, born in 1991, began experimenting with moviemaking in his youth in Winnipeg. He later studied filmmaking at Concordia University in Montreal, and now lives in Toronto, where he produces films through his company, Quantity Cinema. His debut feature film, 88:88, premiered at the Locarno Film Festival in 2015, and had its Canadian premiere at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival.
