The History of Future Folk

Editor’s note: Now that this excellent film is opening in limited theatrical release we’re re-running Neil’s review from last year’s Fantastic Fest. Don’t worry if you don’t live in NY or LA either as the movie hits VOD starting June 4th. Charming and heartwarming aren’t words that you’d easily associate with the movies of Fantastic Fest. Looking back over our barrage of coverage from the past week and change, a lot of what we’re talking about is the hyper-violent, the intensely frightening and in many cases, the downright disturbing. It’s a film festival with plenty of edge, to be sure. And then there’s a film like The History of Future Folk, which sticks out like a sore thumb and fits like a glove all the same. A science fiction oddity that centers on a plot that would destroy all of humanity weaved in with an impossibly charming story of harmony and love. Delivered with melody and levity, this film is undoubtedly the Fantastic Fest Class of 2012’s movie “Most Likely to Make You Smile.”
