Dystopian Digital Shorts

Wow! Just discovered the TV series Future States. Different directors imagine how today’s contentious issues might play out tomorrow. I just watched a few, and it ain’t pretty!  Very well done, but more than a little freaky.  Will have to watch them all!

Play”, on video games run amuck, feels a bit like The Twilight Zone, while “Beholder”, about a privileged pregnant woman facing a choice, is reminiscent of The Handmaid’s Tale. 

Website includes lesson plans for high school educators. The Predict-O-Meter allows us to play Oracle of Delphi and prophesize about the future. 

Oh, how I love public broadcasting!
