STORYCODE LA: FUTURESTATES
December 4, 2014
Join us for an evening with Karim Ahmad and meet other StoryCode enthusiasts!
Science fiction and social impact storytelling collide in Futurestates, a one-of-a-kind immersive short film anthology from public media powerhouse ITVS. Come to the next Storycode LA session and meet Futurestates creator/producer Karim Ahmad, who will walk us through the project’s history, and talk about its iconoclastic final season.
“What will America look like in 10, 15, even 20 years? ‘Futurestates,’ the revolutionary series produced by ITVS, has been proposing answers to these questions since 2010. For its fifth and final season, Futurestates is presented as an immersive online video experience featuring short films that imagine robots with feelings, what education looks like in a wired world, and the future of prisons and our penal system. The central question at the heart of Futurestates is how technologies we may take for granted have a profound effect on our capacity to feel, create, live… and be human.”
