Things to Come

Live Cinema in collaboration with the LCTO.

The story of the 20th century, or of how it could have unfolded after 1936, the year of the film’s release. The imminent outbreak of the Second World War, which is to last ten years, plunges the planet into anarchy and leads to destructive epidemics, until a rational State takes over the reconstruction of civilisation before venturing into the conquest of space.

Written by H.G. Wells, the great precursor of science fiction (The War of the Worlds, The Invisible Man), “Things to Come” is a rare work of art that truly merits rediscovery. A great futuristic film of disturbing relevance, this classic is also a prophetic vision on our time and our relationship with technological progress, as well as being an anti-war pamphlet.

Providing an electro/pop rock accompaniment featuring multiple influences such as psychedelic funk and drum’n’bass, the duo NeirdA & Z3ro, joined on keyboards by Stephen Besse (FUNKTRAUMA, remixer for THE HERBALISER), explores new psychedelic, electronic and kinematic climaxes through a “retro-futuristic” lens.
