Steampunk started as a subgenre of science fiction fascinated with steam-powered machinery and alternative histories frequently set in Victorian England. “Vintage Tomorrows” examines steampunk’s transformation from those sci-fi beginnings into a global cultural movement that influences art, fashion, design and music. Through in-depth interviews with the writers and artists who galvanized the movement, “Vintage Tomorrows”asks what steampunk can tell us about history, community and our complicated relationship with technology. The movie features interviews with steampunk’s pioneering voices, including writers William Gibson, Bruce Sterling, Cory Doctorow, China Miéville, Cherie Priest, Gail Carriger; graphic novelists Paul Guinan and Anina Bennett, musicians Abney Park and Erica “Unwoman” Mulkey, artist/maker Shannon O’Hare and the Neverwas Haul crew, and many more.
