Review

A star rating of 3 out of 5.

Swedish director Maja Borg makes beguiling use of archive clips, monochrome Super 8 stock and lustrous colour HD in this intriguing but self-conscious documentary. It's a highly personal journey for the film-maker that flits between an impassioned missive written to former love Nadya Cazan (the Italian actress who appeared in Borg's 2007 short, Ottica Zero) and footage of the director's visit to the Florida home of nonagenarian social engineer and industrial designer Jacque Fresco. This remarkable edifice doubles as the headquarters of the Venus Project, which was founded to bring about an alternative society built upon a resource-based economy and the intelligent application of technology. Borg's feature-length debut is always visually striking, but the bid to parallel the breakdown of a romance with the collapse of the global financial system feels more than a little unconvincing. So while the personal disclosures are touching and her voiceover is quietly poetic, the piece works best when focusing on Fresco's fascinating ideas and the mournful climactic decision to sell his home.
