Presented by Shannon Looper

Discussion & Video Presentation


In Future by Design, Jacque Fresco shows us a possible future based on reason, freedom, and self direction. What is possible when we design a world that works for everyone? Come watch the film and find out.

"The film is thought provoking so I expect lively discussion afterward.", says Shannon

"Imagine a world where war is outdated, there is no shortage of resources, and every human being enjoys a high standard of living, well, Jacque Fresco has." (

Future by Design is a documentary film by Academy Award(r) nominatedfilmmakerWilliam Gazecki, sharing the life and far-reaching vision of Jacque Fresco, a modern day Da Vinci. Peer to Einstein and Buckminster Fuller, Jacque is a self-taught futurist who describes himself most often as amulti-disciplinarian or "generalist" -- a student of many inter-related fields.

He is a prolific inventor, having spent his entire life (he is now 90 yearsold) conceiving of and devising inventions on various scales which entailthe use of innovative technology.

Future by Design is a visually and intellectually engaging exploration of oneman's vision of a future where war is outdated, there is no shortage ofany necessary resource, and our focus as a species is sustainability. But farfrom presenting a vision of Utopia, this documentary demonstratesa"possible future" -- with real and viable alternatives to our current paradigmof militarism and commercialism.

"Jacque Fresco is an outspoken and immediately likable character who'sradicaland sometimes irreverent ideas are sure to draw both praise and controversy."
