Archaeology of the Future: A Fragment

Cong Feng

Release year: 2019

Run time: 21mins

Film type: experimental film


Simply through a technical error, what can now be displayed and imagined as a phantom of the future is not the future we typically dream of; it's a nightmare just like today. It reminds us that merely passively waiting for time to pass will not automatically bring about a better future.
