I’m working on a new fiction film, production to take place in the summer of 2016. Pragmatopia is the story of two young women adrift in the countryside following the nuclear bombing of their city. The title is a term coined by contemporary philosopher Riane Eisler. She defines a pragmatopia as a ‘real place’. It is “a world where the minds of children will no longer be fettered. It will be a world where limitation and fear will no longer be systematically taught us through myths about how inevitably evil and perverse we humans are. [Children] will be taught new myths, epics, and stories in which human beings are good; men are peaceful; and the power of creativity and love is the governing principle.” (Eisler, The Chalice and the Blade)
