Sundog lives off-grid in the Sonoran Desert. As an elderly and seasoned back-to-the-lander, he lives off anything his ecological haven provides, be it a wild boar or the psychedelic poison of a toad. A SHAPE OF THINGS TO COME gives precedence to the rich sensory materiality of the desert in lieu of judgement, shapeshifting beyond the human scale with a return to animal perspectives.

 It creates a world that stretches from a distant past in the ecological movements of the 1960s to the possibility of sustainable futures in the aftermath of the apocalypse. With the desert as the ultimate existential setting, A SHAPE OF THINGS TO COME depicts an alternate relationship between humanity and nature at a critical time, when civil disobedience is the provocative answer to the most pressing questions.

 "A loner in America’s Southwestern desert is the elusive subject of this mysterious documentary…. Directors Lisa Marie Malloy and J.P. Sniadecki’s minimalist portrait evokes several themes — everything from the restorative power of nature to civilisation’s destructive tendencies." —Tim Grierson, Screen Daily

 “Fascinating. Sublime. Has aesthetic qualities that rival anything contemporary documentary has to offer….” Matt Turner, Brooklyn Rail
