Description: A bemused time-traveling librarian named Flux from the serenity of 2023 to the chaos of Seattle in 1999, where he uncovers video footage from a riot that triggered the city's collapse. Society's obsession with communications technology has created the near-extinction of conversation. People communicate via e-mail and videofax; the film's few face-to-face encounters have a sourish, sitcom-type sting. On top of this jolting social examination, The Drivetime presents police procedure as entertainment (a la programs like COPS) and disturbing abuses of police. The Drivetime forces viewers to think about where our world is heading. This work should be seen by anyone who mistakenly believes that all's calm and well in our little digital sphere.
