Yesterday, The Intercept released “A Message From the Future With Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez,” a seven-minute film narrated by the congresswoman, conceived by Naomi Klein, and illustrated by Molly Crabapple.
It’s a project unlike The Intercept has done before crossing boundaries between fact, fiction, and visual art.
The Intercept asked: what if the United States actually pulled off a Green New Deal? What would the future look like?
Set a couple of decades from now, “A Message From the Future” is a flat-out rejection of the idea that a dystopian future is a forgone conclusion.
Instead, the film offers a thought experiment: what if we decided not to drive off the climate cliff? What if we chose to radically change course and save both our habitat and ourselves?
