Revolution of the Present

European Premiere of Documentary Film Screening, 5pm October 14th SAUL Main Studio CG-042.
Introduced by Kazys Varnelis of Network Laboratory/Columbia University and SAUL.

Humanity seems to be stuck in the perpetual now that is our networked world. More countries are witnessing people taking to the streets in search of answers. Revolution of the Present, the film, features interviews with thought leaders designed to give meaning to our present and precarious condition. This historic journey allows us to us re-think our presumptions and narratives about the individual and society, the local and global, our politics and technology. This documentary analyzes why the opportunity to augment the scope of human action has become so atomized and diminished. Revolution of the Present is an invitation to join the conversation and help contribute to our collective understanding. As Saskia Sassen, the renowned sociologist, states at the outset of the film, ‘we live in a time of unsettlement, so much so that we are even questioning the notion of the global, which is healthy.’ One could say that our film raises more questions than it answers, but this is our goal. Asking the right questions and going back to beginnings may be the very thing we need to do to understand the present, and to move forward from it with a healthy skepticism.
Revolution of the Present is structured as an engaging dinner conversation, there is no narrator telling you what to think, it ￼is not a film of fear of the end time or accusation, it is an invitation to sit at the table and join an in depth conversation ￼about our diverse and plural world.
