EVERYBODY LEFT, ALONG TIME AGO.
Truth or Consequences is a speculative documentary 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 (THIS IS A REAL PLACE!), the film takes place in the shadow of the world’s first commercial Spaceport (THIS IS A REAL PLACE!).
But, it is set in a near-future where space travel is a reality and off-world colonies offer a better future than the tired old Earth. The film follows five residents in the town, they couldn’t or wouldn’t leave.
Combining documentary cinema, archival footage, experimental virtual reality worlds 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 a changing world.
