Two Roads

Two Roads is the last part of the six-part series Teitten Tarinat. It takes us to the future and shows us two alternative outlooks, catastrophe and utopia. In the utopia the transport is safe and fast. The problems of traveling have been solved and we are rid of traffic jams and pollution, whereas in the catastrophe the basic structures of the society have collapsed and the earth is war-torn by an eco-catastrophe. There are no jobs and not much of food either. The people have left their homes once more..
This fictional documentary parallels the two possible futures in a polemic and thought-provoking way. What kind of a future do we have ahead of us? How will we travel in the future? Who travels, and with whose conditions?
