Future Shock by Alvin Toffler

Future Shock

by Alvin Toffler


Title Details

Running Time
42 Min.
Watch this entertaining documentary from 1972 which is hosted and narrated by Orson Welles. Adapted from Alvin Toffler’s book of the same name, the film defines “future shock” as "too much change in too short a period of time”. Taking a whirlwind tour through the advanced technologies of the day (which are all quite dated), Orson Welles comments on what these fast changes will mean for the psychological state of man. The film also looks at how our post-industrial society is affecting all our institutions from marriage to family life to professional life. While the technologies are dated and some of the predictions for the future are ludicrous, many of the ideas behind “future shock” still hold resonance in our rapidly changing 21st century society.
