Prototype. 3D Presentation. 2017. USA. Directed by Blake Williams. DCP. 3D Presentation. 63 min.
An intoxicating experiment in stereoscopic 3D cinema, Prototype takes the Galveston Hurricane of 1900—the deadliest in American history—as an entry point to explore 20th-century America and beyond. Through the static of a 1960s CRT television set, anachronistic images portend our collective doom while proselytizing for a future still to come. Williams’s singular work is a mysterious storm of nature and modernity, a deeply sensory journey into our unknown future that leaves one wondering, is Earth the only planet with 3D movies? What a gift amid the chaos. Courtesy Grasshopper Film
