Imagine you are recording a message that will be archived into a Pandora’s box. A knowledge from an else-time, to be open at a coming-time and for a future need unknown. Imagine a tune, a verse, a movement that could function as a mantra to be embodied by the person opening this box. How would that movement roll? How would that tune sound? What would that verse tell? If you could capture a desire, an image, a sign of what the future would need in order to become the futures you dream of, what would you tell? What can we forecast for the futures to come?

forecasting movements features Ajak Majok, Amira Khalifa, David Muñoz Alcántara, Geoffrey Erista, Mario Lopes, Maryan Abdulkarim, Miritza Lundberg, and Teo Ala-Ruona.

Organised by curator and researcher Giovanna Esposito Yussif in collaboration with Hanna Parry, artistic director of Baltic Circle Festival. Cinematography by Christopher L. Thomas.
