In Dark Futures Film Club – REMIGRATION we see Kaya, his wife Helen, and their daughter Naomi confronted by two suited men. They are representatives of the San Francisco Remigration Program.
The men explain that San Francisco is now occupied entirely by the wealthy class. But stoplights still burn out and trains occasionally jump their rails. Blue-collar labor isn’t obsolete, but it’s scarce. REMIGRATION is needed.
The city has created a program to “remigrate” long-gone working class families from their inland homes back to the city that once pushed them out. Kaya, Helen, and Naomi return to San Francisco and join a handful of other potential remigrants for a tour of what can be expected in their new lives. But can they learn to trust their old home once again? REMIGRATION is a thought-provoking film on a speculative future.
