New Futures TM is the third in a series of short films by Laresa Kosloff that use commercial stock footage to explore the sociopolitical conditions of late capitalism. This new film tells the story of a biohacking company that can medically upgrade personalities. Elite clients use the service to enhance their charisma and prosper within the commercial realm. Successful individuals are traded as financial stock, until a group of disgruntled hackers endeavor to disrupt the system. Kosloff’s film explores competitive individualism, personal branding and the continual struggle of subjecthood in a hierarchical world.
