Santa Barbara Film Festival   January 31 Februay 10


Day 2 at Santa Barbara with the World Premiere of Jeff Bridges presentation of Living in the Future's Past

“Living in the Future’s Past is an invitation to everyone to learn about themes that are often overlooked in our cultural dialogue, but are necessary keys to the future that we desire for our children. Living in the Future's Past is a metaphor for tuning in to what is already here.” - Jeff Bridges   Adam Wright and Lise Romanoff from Vision Films, Laurie Kirby (FestForums), Susan Kucera the director and ...

Great review of Living in the Future's Past from The Santa Barbara Independent

First published in The Santa Barbara Independent - Friday, February 2, 2018

From the category of docs, one of the more powerful entries is Living in the Future Past, which had its world premiere last night in the Metro movieplex compound. Director Susan Kucera has achieved something masterful with her film, an entry in the growing population of ecological cautionary tales beautiful, nature-affirmative, humanity-questioning imagery and intelligent commentary, akin to Koyaanisqatsi (“world out of balance”) and Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth franchise, but expanding the canvas to include psychological and anthropological side trips.

USA October 2017 - 83 minutes



Academy Award Winner, Jeff Bridges presents this beautifully photographed tour de force of original thinking on who we are and the environmental challenges we face. Jeff, alongside prominent scientists and authors, weave evolution, emergence, entropy, dark ecology, and what some are calling the end of nature, into a story that helps us understand our place among the species of Earth’s household. The film upends our way of thinking and provides original insights into our subconscious motivations, the unintended consequences, what to do about our fossil slaves, and how our fundamental animal nature influences our future as Humankind.
