The Future Is Worn
The Future is Worn is a music-driven fable created as the first piece in a larger body of work exploring what it means to mature as a species.
In the film we follow the character Sol; a astronaut-for-hire in self-imposed exile. In the extreme isolation of a distant and barren planet Sol desperately tries to avoid her debilitating anxiety and its root causes. But with the help and compassion of the benevolent phantom Spectra, Sol learns to see her faults as powerful tools.
The film is inspired by personal experiences with imposter syndrome and paralyzing depression, both prior-to and during the pandemic. Through visual metaphors, a psychedelic score, and a non-verbal narrative, the story of this experience is revealed. The result underscores the universal importance of self-love and self-understanding, for without it the future is worn.
