A community project exploring the fantastic & futuristic visions of developmentally disabled and autistic artists from Brooklyn, NY.


Ever wonder what a vacation on the moon is like? We have! THE FUTURE is a 12-minute animated film drawn and voiced entirely by the adult artists of the L.A.N.D. (League Artists Natural Design) Gallery in Brooklyn, New York.

Our film imagines THE FUTURE: What marvelous inventions will we create? Take a trip in the DREAM MACHINE! Ride in a PERSONAL JET CAR! Feel the awesome power of PLANET LOVE. Witness the ROBOTS who generate electricity. Fill up on ORGANIC PANCAKES in the kitchen of THE FUTURE! Take a cruise on the HOUSEBOAT SHIP and a Rasta ROLLER COASTER to the Moon! It’s all waiting for you in… THE FUTURE!

This community film project is part of the League Treatment Center's art program, L.A.N.D., a unique studio and gallery that nurtures adult artists living with disabilities. The League Treatment Center was founded in 1953 with a mission to discover and nurture each child and each adult's strengths and abilities THE FUTURE is directed by NYC animator M. Wartella, produced by Cathryn Zommer, and curated by Susan Metrican and Matthew Bede Murphy of the L.A.N.D. Gallery. We plan a Summer 2010 premiere.
