Future My Love is a unique love story challenging our collective and personal utopias, in search of freedom.
At the brink of losing the idealist love of her life, filmmaker Maja Borg takes us on a poetic road trip through the financial collapse, exploring a radically different economic and social model proposed by 95-year-old futurist Jacque Fresco. How much freedom are we prepared to give to the ones we love? And how much responsibility are we ready to take for our society?
Carefully weaving a texture of archive footage, black and white Super 8 film, and colour HD, Borg poignantly depicts the universal struggle between our heads and hearts in times of big change.

“If there’s something self-conscious about the framing, the core is provocative and outward-looking: in searching for solutions, both for her own unhappiness and everybody else’s, Borg transforms the personal into the unmistakably political.” – The Guardian
“With Borg, there’s also an earnest, endearing fragility; she is quick to turn her analysis on herself and her relationship’s past failings, and there’s no smug, over-worthy indignation in her honest recognition that the hardest thing to change is ourselves.” – Sight & Sound Magazine
★★★★ – View London
“Bold, beautiful and educational, Future My Love is a thought provoking and stylishly experimental piece of art that showcases Maja Borg’s unique capacity for filmmaking and cements her as a talent to watch. Recommended.”
