Director Statement

For me—as a protopian vision—Game~B is like a sexy person who’s always walking ahead of you, into the future. They’ll always have their issues but day by day they encourage you to transform your head, heart and body… and be more of a team player.

My hope is simply that this film will encourage artists who create—anything from memes to speculative dreams—to share their vision of Game~B—a future that they’d feel a little bit more proud to leave to their descendants. And we'll keep iterating together until we accelerate the exodus out of Game A.
