Synopsis: Truth or Consequences” is a speculative documentary about time and how we weave the past into the present and our possible future. Set in the small desert town of Truth or Consequences, New Mexico, the film takes place in the shadow of the world’s first commercial Spaceport. Subtly set in a near future when space travel has begun, the film follows five residents in the town.

Anchored in observational documentary footage filmed over three years, the film weaves together archival footage, experimental virtual reality worlds, an improvised score by Bill Frisell and a speculative premise based on current events – a launch site for commercial space travel outside of town. These intertwine to create a lyrical meditation on progress, history, and how we navigate a sense of loss within ourselves and a changing world.
