Originally guest programmed by Tacoma Film Festival as part of the 36th Olympia Film Festival

“Filmed throughout New York City over the month of August in 2017, Brett Story’s extraordinary documentary presents a complex, layered portrait of a city and its residents at a particular moment in time. By asking people what they imagine for their future, and weaving these responses throughout powerful and understated observational vignettes of life in this current moment, a view of a collective consciousness emerges – one that is at times hopeful amidst the anxiety of an uncertain future and a present where the effects of climate catastrophe are just beginning to be felt.” – David Dinnell, Tacoma Film Festival
