How does a scene from a movie, TV show, or video game of your choice illustrate or exemplify what one, or more, of the authors we have read so far this semester, says about the future? In other words, how does the concept of the future in the text you plan to examine for the final draft of the Video Essay affect society, ecology, or technology?
