PREHISTORIZED

Director/Editor: Eugene Sun Park

When an event or artifact is relegated to "prehistory," it becomes decontexualized and exists in a sort of cultural waste bin. Many early sci-fi films have encountered a similar fate, and their depictions of "the future" strike us today as outdated, naive, and unintentionally humorous. In Prehistorized, these old films are reimagined and re-presented out of their original context, colliding with the gaze of the 21st-century viewer, whose cultural perspective and milieu will one day itself become outdated, naive, and unintentionally humorous, perhaps even relegated to some future civilization's "prehistory."
