LFF 2017: Life Guidance

The unspecified future time period that we see in Life Guidance doesn’t have advanced technology at every turn, neon skyscapes filled with flying cars, or even obedient robots in every household (although there is a mechanical rabbit at one point). Instead it looks almost exactly like our present, the modern, minimalist décor and the ideal work ethic something that a lot of us probably strive to have in our own lives. It is this that makes Ruth Mader’s film so much more sinister, the similarities to our world making this dystopian future seem more of an inevitability than an imagining.
