Alex Gendler: how to recognize a dystopia

"The genre of dystopia – the 'not good place'– has captured the imaginations of artists and audiences alike for centuries. But why do we bother with all this pessimism? Alex Gendler explains how dystopias act as cautionary tales – not about some particular government or technology, but the very idea that humanity can be molded into an ideal shape."

Moon Graffiti: speculating about an alternative moon landing

"That's one small step for a man; one giant leap for mankind.' We all know the quote, the triumphant story. It seems written in stone. But Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong came within inches of tragedy when they landed Apollo 11. Moon Graffiti imagines what it might have sounded like if things had gone a little differently. Based on a contingency speech written by William Safire for Richard Nixon titled 'In the Event of Moon Disaster'.

The Truth is a series of new radio dramas produced by Jonathan Mitchell, edited by Hillary Frank and commissioned by American Public Media."

Raumpatrouille: Die phantastischen Abenteuer des Raumschiffes Orion

"The adventures of the ORION and her crew were made by german and french tv in 1965/66. It was germans first science fiction series, made in black-and-white, and lasted only 7 episodes. The first airing in late 1966 were a tremendous success, but the producers decide not to make any continuation (another 7 scripts were completed) because of costs and ressources."

Nothing Lasts Forever: a low budget parody about a struggling artist

"Writer–director Schiller is best known for his short films from the early days of SNL and in 1984, together with producer Lorne Michaels, concocted this imaginative fantasy–comedy about true love, bad art, magical hobos, Carnegie Hall and space travel. Sweet, absurd and crammed with an incredible cast and countless hilarious moments of inspired brilliance, it was never released and never found the cult–audience it so rightfully deserved."

(Zack Carlson, 16 December 2012)
