The Living

They say a formal full press release and EPK are coming soon, but in the meantime...

Season 4 of the ITVS Futurestates program will debut on April 24, 2013, with another group of 7 futuristic short films from 7 different filmmakers and their own individual visions of what the America of tomorrow will look like.

As a reminder, the initiative produces a series of short films by up-and-coming filmmakers, commissioned by ITVS that explore “possible future scenarios through the prism of today’s global realities.

Each episode presents a different vision of American society in the not-too-distant future, by each filmmaker (or as ITVS calls them, “Independent Prognosticators“) – using speculative fiction to explore, on film, social issues.

We've been following the series since its first season, featuring some great Futurestates films from filmmakers like Barry Jenkins, A. Sayeeda Clarke, Tina Mabry and others.

This season (season 4), we'll get to see the work of Julian Breece - a short titled The Living

Here's its synopsis:

Organ Harvesting Initiative surgeon Isaac North visits a Colorado refugee town where quadriplegic Luther Hillman has signed up to be euthanized in return for his family's medical care, his organs harvested for more “productive” citizens.

It stars Brandon Scott, Harmony Santana (her first role since starring in Rashaad Ernesto Green's Gun Hill Road last year), Sy Richardson, and Lisa Goodman.

While we wait for season 4 of Futurestates to begin in about 3 weeks, watch the trailer for Breece's The Living below:

For more information about all 7 short films from this season (as well as all the shorts from previous seasons), visit: FutureStates.tv.

This year, all 7 shorts will air on FUTURESTATES.tv, PBS.org, and on PBS.
