First-time filmmaker Kentaro Kishi started his career as an apprentice to playwright Akio Miyazawa in 1998; he went on to found a theater troupe and star in various independent and experimental films and videos. Kishi’s eclectic experience is evident in this dreamlike Japanese narrative, inspired by a 2007 trip to Ramallah, Jordan.

Sachi and Osamu rent a former school in the Japanese countryside with the intention of starting their own program. While living there, they sift through the left-behind belongings of the previous inhabitants: a Little Red Riding Hood puppet set, a student notebook where the phrase “Let us record our memories” is written. The past, present, and future move in and out of focus for Sachi and Osamu—and for the audience; with its shifting camerawork, mysterious dialogue, and blurred timeline, Record Future leaves us to wonder if our dreams are glimpses at an existence not our own.
