Future That Never Happened, The

Item Number:
50 min.

Man has always looked wistfully toward the future. But in the '50s, flush with the headlong rush of technology, "futurists" made countless bold predictions of the wonders of life to come, from the "kitchen of tomorrow" to levitating cars. Forty years later, the world has changed dramatically, but in almost none of the ways yesterday's dreamers imagined. THE FUTURE THAT NEVER HAPPENED examines American culture now and then to see why these predictions were off base. Revisit some of the boldest predictions, which now seem hopelessly naïve, and discover why many of the commonplace elements of modern society were inconceivable only a few decades ago. Meet current futurists who offer their take on why their predecessors got sidetracked, and see what they are predicting for the years to come!
