/// Short Film about Prophet Royal Robertson ///
"Planning the Future"
17. September - 1. November 2014
Delmes & Zander, Berlin
PROPHET ROYAL ROBERTSON'S (1930-1997) rant-repertoire includes biblical prophesies, numerical formulas, and visions of dream houses and space travel merging such disparate themes as messianic eschatology, futurism and science fiction. Many of this works include calendars chronicling memories of his allegedly unfaithful ex-wife Adell and their destroyed marriage in brief journal notations scribbled in each date's block. A preoccupation with numerology and biblical prophecies of earth's final days as found in the book of Revelation is pervasive.
This excerpt from the feature documentary MAKE is the introduction of the character Prophet Royal Robertson.
