Synopsis

Inspired by social guidance films produced by the United States government during the Cold War, a choreographer restages safety drills, corporate and tech start-up office meditation, and Boy Scout exercises in order to ask what futures we are preparing for.

Our take

How does our physical experience embody the collective anxiety of the present? Filmmaker and choreographer Sarah Friedland answers this question by restaging preparatory exercises, carefully framing bodies and spaces to craft a film that is mesmerizing and eerie, partly due to its sensory pleasures.
