TRUTH OR CONSEQUENCES is a speculative documentary about four people finding a sense of belonging in the New Mexican desert. Based in documentary footage, the film takes place in a near future where people have left Earth to colonize new planets. Set in the small desert town of Truth or Consequences, NM, the film tells the story of the people who stayed. Through observational footage, archival, and experimental animations, TRUTH OR CONSEQUENCES is a lyrical meditation on striving, memory, and finding what we’re looking for in the unlikeliest of places.
