Scientists discover that the farther you are from earth, the slower time passes and therefore, the longer you'll live. A surreal satire on class in New York City, the film follows 21 different characters' race to be a "sky-person" - the elite one percent who live above the 13th floor. Written by
Very funny and thought provoking, Sky People is a new classic to share with friends,family and foes..... It is the Gulliver's Travels of our time- a funny, yet poignant satire about the endless epidemic of meaningless measurement---ourselves against "the others". Sky People enlightens us about the judgments ( albeit based on flimsy rationalizations and misinformation ) that consume us, distract us, delude us---wasting our lives BUT making us feel somewhat superior 8-) --at least until something real or serious brings us back to Earth ; ) Filmmaker Thakur somehow brings us the timeless lessons of the Brobdingnagians, the Liliputians, the Houyhnhnms & the Yahoos...AND more in just a few brilliant, beautiful minutes. A great film-a new classic-Bravo!We loved it.
We watched it 3 times!!!
