Storyline

Future by Design shares the life and far-reaching vision of Jacque Fresco, considered by many to be a modern day Da Vinci. Peer to Einstein and Buckminster Fuller, Jacque is a self-taught futurist who describes himself most often as a "generalist" or multi-disciplinarian -- a student of many inter-related fields. He is a prolific inventor, having spent his entire life (he is now 90 years old) conceiving of and devising inventions on various scales which entail the use of innovative technology. As a futurist, Jacque is not only a conceptualist and a theoretician, but he is also an engineer and a designer. Written by Gazecki, William

A Fresconian Future
9 July 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film is an intimate look at the inimitable and controversial musings of Jacque Fresco. Future by Design presents a uniquely Fresconian future where many of our current concerns and apprehensions are addressed and creatively dealt with. Fascinating and provocative. I agree with my fellow reviewer that this film deserves to be more closely examined and widely released, especially given the fact that much of what Fresco theorized has already come to pass. Future by Design is a well-made, insightful and prophetic documentary, as well as yet another example of a small film that delivers a big message.

Highly recommended.
