After Scarcity (Video)

link (trailer):


After Scarcity is a sci-fi essay film that tracks Soviet cyberneticians (1950s – 1980s) in their attempt to build a fully-automated planned economy. If history at its best is a blueprint for science-fiction, revisiting histories of economic technology might enable an access to the future. The film speculates ways in which infrastructures of labour and production can be modeled through techno-industries and their modes of governance, in order to find new ways of building coalitions under precarious working conditions that characterize the contemporary world.
