Otolith: sci-fi documentary

"A sci–fi documentary by The Otolith Group (Anjalika Sagar and Kodwun Eshun) [and Richard Couzins]. The film continues a long tradition from Chris Marker and Jean–Luc Godard, to Black Audio Collective. A film essay based on new newsreels and classic archive material. The guiding principle behind the film is the destabilisation of the traditional concept of time as a linear, progressive process. Here time is more relative: By locating ourselves in the future we can look back at the past from a new perspective and thereby generate the potential to create alternatives to the present. The directors call this 'Post–potential futures,' and have directed a sci–fi story about a woman who has to stay in outer space because the earth has become inaccessible to humans. Her voice guides us through a narrative interweaving public versions and private memories from a new radicalised and reflective perspective. A unique synthesis of fiction and documentary.

Director: The Otolith Group (Anjalika Sagar, Kodwo Eshun), Richard Couzins)"
