Predicting the future is very difficult. We might be able to forecast how a trend will develop, but individual products? Much harder. This is why the work of Arthur Radebaugh is so amazing.
Closer Than We Think is about the mid–20th-century comic strip and its creator, Arthur Radebaugh.
The film provides important insight into what made the comic a foundation for other popular science fiction endeavors. More importantly, it shows how the strip directly encouraged nascent engineers and scientists to actualize the future described therein.
The film also contains interviews with the legendary Syd Mead (TRON, BLADE RUNNER).
A must-see for everyone, but certainly for those into futurism, tech, design, advertising or a nostalgic view of the future.
