‘The Master thesis 'How to Change the World Using Art: Imagining an Institute for eUtopia' identifies what the author describes as being a hole in the filmscape - an absence of films that imagine more positive futures (eutopian films). Using the textual device of a secondary character, Sam Bunn discusses his ideas and research around this topic in the form of a conversation with an artificial intelligence from the future. He uses short stories and sections of slightly more academic text to explore his ideas. It contains a survey of recent science fiction films and a theoretical section on utopian theory. The thesis closes with descriptions of the 5 works Bunn made that dealt with this topic.’ Samuel Bunn
