Kitchy Sci-Fi movie with a man from the future [A.D. 3005] coming back to the 'present' [A.D. 1981] to try to convince the world that starting a World War 3 is a Good Idea.
In English with hebrew subtitles on Pal (EUR) format DVD
A representative from the Future year of 3005 arrives back in the world of 1985 to convince the present leaders to make certain World War III happens. This war, he guarantees, will make for a better future. Having already caused natural disasters and catastrophes by coming back from the future, he now tries to force his message on the world press and TV.
"David Avidan was an Israeli poet, writer, painter and director who was infatuated with the future. In this movie "Sheder min-Haatid" - A message from the future - Avidan tells the story of FM (Future Man), a messenger who comes from the future year 3005 to future year 1985 (the film was shot in 1981), with the goal of convincing humanity not to postpone WW3 but rather to start it immediately. The film has a very low-budget feeling to it, with this kind of ridiculous sci-fi shiny clothes and costumes.
If you like such sci-fi mannerisms, this film is for you.
However, the film also contains other very interesting ideas - interesting critique on human culture, ideas on telepathy, time travel and an intriguing sci-fi plot. This is film is one of its kind, as not a lot of sci-fi films are done in Israel (in fact i can't think of any other). However, it is well worth watching not only for that reason, but because it is a interesting inspired and inspiring piece of sci-fi fiction." - anonymous
