History's Future

"Tan's work is direct, powerful"
Blake Gopnik, The Washington Post

Synopsis

Part fiction, part documentary, part speculative essay on the contemporary world, HISTORY’S FUTURE is about one man’s odyssey through a Europe in turmoil – and through his own mind. Losing his memory after a mugging, a man known only as ‘MP’ (Missing Person) leaves his home and sets out on a journey – in search not only for his memory but perhaps also for a new identity. MP finds himself confronted by a world in which there are no longer any certainties; an era of crisis on many levels. On his travels from country to country, through a series of strange, illuminating, sometimes comic encounters, MP attempts to gain insight into the complexity of life in the 21st-century West – into what commentators have called an age of ‘rolling catastrophe’.
