Future Relic TRAILER

Future Relic is a science fiction feature film that imagines the world where tides have risen so high that cities are drowning, forcing the powers that be to take drastic measures to save mankind. Scientist Matthias Rey posits that excavating large sections from the surface of the moon will reverse tides, but has no idea what unforeseeable effects this will have on Earth. Dr. Rey disappears, leaving his daughter Lona to pick up the pieces.Future Relic, at its heart, is about the struggle to connect when we live in a world where nothing is like it was supposed to be. The feature will be completed in 2016. Directed By: Daniel Arsham Produced By: Courtney Andrialis Starring: Juliette Lewis, James Franco, Mahershala Ali, Arturo Castro, Ethan Suplee, Matthew Maher, Ronald Guttman, Kevin Kilner and Aimee Laurence Written By: Timothy Stanley & Amanda Johnson-Zetterstrom Cinematography & Editing By:: Ben Louis Nicholas Executive Produced By: Jane Rosenthal Casting By: Stephen Vincent & Sig De Miguel

Chains represent Film The Future’s first music video collaboration with Usher. The song is a tribute to victims of racial profiling and police brutality. FTF sought to weave a narrative suggesting the notion of history repeating itself – the crisis at hand is anything but new. Stark black and white photography puts the viewer face to face with victims past and present. Usher moves through space, in the center of the conflict but also witness to his own demise. Chains premiered online on 2/1/16 and have since made the rounds on Rolling Stone, MTV, NBC, and countless other news outlets. Directed & Edited By Ben Louis Nicholas Creative Directed By Daniel Arsham Produced By: Courtney Andrialis Cinematography By: Dan Kennedy

Future Relic 02

Far into the future, the second installment of Future Relic brings us into a subterranean workstation. Present in this station is the fossilized body of Dr. Mattias Rey, which stands inconsequentially against the wall. A single Operator (played by James Franco) is busy at work. He is tasked with the retrieval and destruction of fossilized objects from the Earth’s scorched surface. He suffers from severe “moon pull”. His banal, blue-collar routine of sorting and destroying is interrupted by an object that ignites his imagination: a fossilized photo camera. The discovery of the camera sparks a darkly comic waltz between the Operator and Dr. Rey, his solitary companion.Future Relic 02 premiered in 2014 on The NYTimes T Magazine. Directed By: Daniel Arsham, Ben Louis Nicholas & Sam Stonefield Produced By: Sam Stonefield Starring: James Franco Written By: Timothy Stanley Cinematography & Editing By:: Ben Louis Nicholas Executive Produced By: Jane Rosenthal
