Liminals depicts a marginalized future society attempting to save humanity from extinction through abandoned transcendental activities. Employing a 1970s cinema vérité aesthetic yet set three generations years from now, Liminals follows eight subjects as they engage in varying cathartic ritualistic behaviors, from whirling and kundalini meditation to modern dance and head-banging. It is their belief that doing this in tandem with Machine DNA brain augmentations will incite access to “The Liminal”—a speculative paraspace between the physical and the virtual where humankind can temporarily exist in gestation towards a new phase of evolution.
