Samuel Goldwyn Films Steampunk Doc “VINTAGE TOMORROWS”. VINTAGE TOMORROWS examines the Steampunk movement’s explosive growth, origins, and cultural significance, from its sci-fi beginnings into an aesthetic and DIY movement that influences art, fashion, design and music globally. Through in-depth interviews with the writers and artists credited with galvanizing the movement and the cultural historians and social scientists investigating the phenomenon, VINTAGE TOMORROWS poses the fundamental question: What does Steampunk tell us about history, community and our complicated relationship with technology.
VINTAGE TOMORROWS began its festival journey at San Diego ComicCon in 2015 and will be released globally a year later July 19, 2016, on VOD and digital by Samuel Goldwyn Films. This year alone the film screened as part of the Steampunk World’s Fair, as well as the Clockwork Alchemy and the Seattle International Film Festival. The film is currently available for pre-order on iTunes.
The movie includes a prominent collection of Steampunk’s pioneering voices, including writers William Gibson, Sterling, China Miéville, Cherie Priest, Gail Carriger; graphic novelists Paul Guignon and Anina Bennett, musicians Abney Park and Erica “Unwoman” Mulkey, artist/maker Shannon O’Hare and the Neverwas Haul gang, and over 20 other denizens of the subculture.
VINTAGE TOMORROWS is directed by Byrd McDonald and produced by McDonald, Alan Winston, and Sean Hutchinson.
