Based on exhaustive research in cooperation with his family, this docudrama portrays the revolutionary views of Filippo Tommaso Marinetti (1876-1944), the leading advocate of Futurism.
Futurism is an intellectual and artistic movement. Created in Italy in 1909, Futurism advocates for a new aesthetic based on progress, machines and speed.
The narrative voice of Marinetti himself conveys the language of this movement, which sought to encompass all forms of creativity.
The film combines historical re-enactments, drama and action, interviews with Italian and international scholars and critics, 3D computer graphics and archival footage. Don’t miss this film. The future is now.
