I Saw the Future

In a dark expanse that could be the cosmos, we hear the voice of Arthur C. Clarke, whose face – taken from a BBC archive dating back to the 1960s – appears in the distance. His features quickly dematerialize into a multitude of shimmering pixels, creating an envel- oping and immersive space out of which the thoughts of the famed author of «2001: A Space Odyssey » emerge. At the heart of this spectral environment, and with a magnetic voice sending us back to the time of cathode ray tubes and the golden age of television broadcasting, A C. Clarke tells us about the arrival of digital revolution, decades aheadof his time. This film is an invitation to travel, and a crepuscular form of poetry to be ex- perienced immersively.
