"Past Hope Now is timeless in that it can’t be pinned down to any era, it is evocative and nostalgic without tugging unnecessarily at too many heartstrings, it is fresh without trying to be fashionable and it is effortlessly experimental without seeming to try too hard to be clever, though a wonderfully clever musical creation it certainly is."

Director: Anthony Nikolchev | 20-mins. | USA | 2016 | Drama/Dance
A short film meets extended music video, PAST HOPE NOW is a couple’s fight to survive in the chaos of the desert – a physical, mental and natural struggle – set to the music of John Isaac Watters.
