Looking Forward (2023) DOC NYC 2023

One of the best shorts of DOC NYC is LOOKING FORWARD, a meditation on the future and how we view it.

The film is mostly a series of AI generated images based on director Steven Ascher‘s commentary about how we see the future. It’s a thought provoking look at how he see the future shapes the future…and most interestingly suggests at one point that perhaps seeing the future as full of doom and gloom may result in survival since, especially in a world on the verge of war, gets us to move to safety.

I was entranced by the film and I had to watch it a second time…and I pondered getting a ticket to see it on the big screen since the AI created images are dream like and burn their way into your brain.

A brilliant look at life, LOOKING FORWARD is recommended.
