THE WAY WE WERE

D irector Marten Persiel follows his debut THIS AIN’T CALIFORNIA with a semi-fictional documentary pre­senting a futuristic fairytale about the splendor of nature. The year is 2051, and people are looking back at the past. They remember the golden age of the beautiful 2010s and 2020s – a time when it was still possible to experience wild nature first hand. According to official estimates from the United Nations, we are currently losing 200 natural species every day. THE WAY WE WERE takes us forward into a bankrupt future that we may well be bound for. We meet Ben in 2051 and watch him saving the world by mak­ing people feel something they thought they had forgotten...
