It’s 2097 and the days of upheaval are over. A new resilience has taken hold.
Three young girls must make a decision which will affect their entire city, as well as members of their own families. The future of the city relies on their ability to embrace the unknown, face the future and act.
2097: We Made Ourselves Over takes you on a journey to the cusp of the next century. Come into a world where consciousness is transferred from the dead to the living. See molecular harvesters destroy cities and rebuild them.
In five short science fiction films – each accompanied by an interactive film for smartphones – and through live events across both Hull and Aarhus, 2097: We Made Ourselves Over explores the belief that everyone has the power to act and influence the future – uncovering the unnerving and exhilarating idea that anything is possible.
Step into the future here…
Across the city, a chorus begins. Phone boxes ring inviting you to answer. At the end of the line, a voice asks for your help.
Come on a journey 80 years into the future and reimagine your city in 2097.
Starting on 1 October at 2pm, every phone box across the city will ring – pick up the call and watch as a future world is revealed in city wide screenings and a free smartphone app – giving you the chance to experience face to face encounters in an unforgettable journey to 2097.
The countdown has begun…
