Futures Market (Spain, 2012)

Futures Market (2012)
April 7, 2013 - 7:00 pm

"A compelling meditation on dreams that doubles as an expose of how cheap those dreams have become, Futures Market is a wise and fulfilling film that bears lofty comparison with the work of Spanish maestro helmers Victor Erice and Jose Luis Guerin." — Variety

Directed by Mercedes Álvarez

This timely documentary illuminates the consequences of modern global commerce and its neutralizing impact on local cultures, topographies and histories in modern Spain. Filmmaker Mercedes Álvarez artfully presents settings in which high-rolling financial decisions effectively erase homes, neighborhoods and cityscapes. State fairs, leadership conferences, investment societies and flea markets take on a ghostly new reality in this sharply observed essay film.
