Environmental disaster, economic catastrophe, oppressive regimes, and the dehumanising effects of technology: sound familiar? Maybe we live in an age of dystopia. We certainly continue to be drawn to cinematic portrayals of frightening and fractured fictional societies, perhaps because they mirror and refract back our fears for the present day as much as the future that lies ahead of us.
We’re thrilled to present a series of exhilarating cautionary tales and fascinating fantasias that explore alternative forms of total societal collapse. DYSTOPIA delves into our deepest anxieties for the self and society and comes back up gasping for air. Welcome to the bad place.
