About the film, “The Paradigm Shift(s)”:

In a time when so many popular books, movies, TV shows and video games depict a seemingly inevitable dystopian future, seven high school students created a film based on the premise that the future actually turns out good. The Paradigm Shift(s) tells the story of a group of young people from the future sent back in time to learn about the time “when the silence broke”, to discover the seeds of resistance that eventually led to the beautiful, just, ideal future they live in. Inspired by the short story “Evidence” by Alexis Pauline Gumbs, this genre-defying film is a reminder, to all those fighting tirelessly for a better future, to keep going.
