Truth or Consequences
  • Year2020
  • Duration103 min

A speculative film about time and how we weave the past into the present and our possible future. Set in the small desert town of Truth or Consequences, New Mexico, the film takes place in the shadow of the world's first commercial Spaceport. Subtly set in a near future when space travel has begun, the film follows five residents in the town. Combining documentary cinema, archival footage, experimental virtual reality images and an improvised score by Bill Frisell, Truth or Consequences is a lyrical meditation on progress, history, and how we navigate a sense of loss within ourselves and within a changing world.

Truth and Consequences is available on Sheffield Doc/Fest Selects and Doc/Player from Friday 13 November at 5:00pm until Thursday 26 November at 11:59pm.
