ABOUT FUTURE RELIC
Daniel Arsham’s Future Relics are familiar and common objects that are obsolete in the future world. Future Relics 01 – 04 were each accompanied by a corresponding short film of the same name. Future Relic 05 provided a clue to its collectors, inviting them to engage in an interactive journey as archeologists of the future in search of the next relics in the series. On December 9th 2016, at 12 PM EST, Future Relic 06 begins that next chapter in this journey.
Future Relic is a science fiction film that imagines a world where tides have risen so high that cities are drowning, forcing the powers that be to take drastic measures to save mankind. Scientist Matthias Rey posits that excavating large sections from the surface of the moon will reverse tides, but has no idea what unforeseeable effects this will have on Earth. Dr. Rey disappears, leaving his daughter Lona to pick up the pieces. Future Relic, at its heart, is about the struggle to connect when we live in a world where nothing is like it was supposed to be. The film stars Juliette Lewis, Mahershala Ali, Arturo Castro, James Franco, Ronald Guttman, Matthew Maher, and Ethan Suplee, among others. Produced by Arsham’s film company, Film the Future, in collaboration with Director of Photography Ben Louis Nicholas and Producer Courtney Andrialis.
