Places of the Future
As the world looks to get beyond the coronavirus pandemic, places that are hotbeds of innovation and new ideas, and that are affordable and enjoyable to work and live in, will be places that people gravitate to. The cities and towns we profile range from the large to the small, the old to the new, and well-known to the hardly-ever-heard-of. The one thing they all have in common, though, is an appetite to create – or recreate – a future by offering humans the work of the future. The mini-documentaries were all made by different filmmakers living and working in these locations– a diverse and talented cadre of young, up-and-coming cinematographers who helped us get inside their hometowns, and tell the important stories that make them special places of the future. They capture the essence of some of the key places we’ve identified – Dundee (Scotland), Kochi (India), Atlanta(U.S.), Nairobi (Kenya), Silicon Wadi (Israel), Remotopia and Virtual Space. By training a telescope (and a movie camera) on the places of the future today, we can try to figure out what work will look like – and where it’s happening – tomorrow, when this day is done.
