Tomorrow's World

From the seemingly far-flung dystopias where ultraviolent gangs roam post-apocalyptic wastelands, to more immediately recognisable futures in which our megacities grow out of control.

Tomorrow’s World collects the films that imagine our futures for us – shaping our days to come and filling them with fear and wonder. This is perhaps science fiction best understood as what Ray Bradbury described as ‘sociological studies of the future.’
