In the Future They Ate from the Finest Porcelain resides in the cross-section between sci-fi, archaeology and politics. Combining live motion and CGI, the film explores the role of myth for history, fact and national identity. A narrative resistance group makes underground deposits of elaborate porcelain –suggested to belong to an entirely fictional civilization. Their aim is to influence history and support future claims to their vanishing lands.
