5, 50, 100 Years From Now

Anu Pennanen

5, 50, 100 Years from Now looks to the future in an era of resource-based conflict and global environmental crisis. The short essay video is based on Neste gas station customer's reflections on what the future will look like. 5, 50, 100 Years from Now weaves together people's imagination with the associative imagery of the circulation of cars and the filling of petrol tanks – the endlessly rotating movement of fossil economy.
