Filmmaker's note

In The Future Love Will Also was inspired by a series of works by co-director Alfie Lee, in which he had whited himself out of each image. In erasing his identify, Lee drew attention to it. In this collaboration, Allis and Lee show us that even in a void, love will persist. The film continues this contradiction in its look. Although set in the future, it is anchored in an ‘80s post-punk sensibility, saturated with fluorescent neons; its dark themes highlighted with bouncy indie pop by Lee. In The Future Love Will Also is the last chapter in co-director Clayton Allis' trilogy about surveillance, privacy and identity in a post-9-11/post-Snowden world.
