A speculative documentary set in the desert town of Truth or Consequences, New Mexico. In the shadow of the world’s first commercial Spaceport, and set in a near future when space travel has begun, the film follows five residents in the town while meditating on time, progress, history and loss.
A lyrical work of documentary science fiction, Hannah Jayanti’s Truth or Consequences is a revealing reflection on humanity’s ambitions and stasis. Applying a bold fictional premise, the film is a thrilling formal adventure that never loses sight of the tenderness with which it treats its subjects.
