The filmmaker’s statement: “Living in the Future’s Past is a definitive departure from the usual ‘ecological documentary.’ As a documentarian, I’ve always been interested in what makes us and other animals tick. The film gives us a greater understanding of both the physical and unconscious , mechanisms at play in our inner and outer world, like ‘optional foraging strategy’ or sexual selection. We’re not the only animals with social and economic relationships to the environment.” – Susan Kucera.
