Utopia 1.0: Postneofuturistcapitalism in 3D

Utopia 1.0: Post-Neo-Futurist-Capitalism in 3D! is an expedition through a largely abandoned virtual 3D world in search of utopia.

It is an absurd idea, as the title suggests. There is no such thing as post-neo-futurist-capitalism just as there is no such thing as utopia. Utopia, literally defined from the Greek etymology means “no place.” Thomas More invented the word to name his invented island—a place (a “no place”) that represented a perfect society. Yet, despite its existence, our very notion of progress depends on our ability to imagine utopia, to imagine a better world. This film
is not even in 3D. but rather depicts a 3D rendered world in 2D. But more than mere trickery, the title reaches for the imaginary while suggesting that something better is yet to come.
