Live Virtual Q&A
Sunday, March 7 at 4:00 PM

Film curator/programmer Inney Prakash will lead a conversation with “Truth or Consequences” co-collaborators Hannah Jayanti and Alexander Porter focused on the politics of process and form, and the set of guiding principles they used to undergird all aspects of the film’s creation. From building relationships with collaborators and subjects to improvising the film’s score and virtual reality elements, Hannah and Alexander will discuss the important role of “not knowing” in documentary filmmaking. They’ll also touch on Meteoric, the arts festival they co-created with the residents of Truth or Consequences, New Mexico.

TRUTH OR CONSEQUENCES is a speculative documentary about time and how we weave the past into the present and our possible future. Subtly set in a near future when commercial space travel is common, the film follows five residents of the small desert town of Truth or Consequences, New Mexico, living in the shadow of the world’s first public Spaceport.

Anchored in observational documentary footage filmed over three years, the film weaves together archival material, experimental virtual reality worlds, an improvised score by Bill Frisell, and a speculative premise based on current events to create a lyrical meditation on progress, history, and how we navigate a sense of loss within ourselves and a changing world.
