When a Mars colony's comm satellite is damaged, Emilia Riley embarks on a seemingly harmless repair excursion. A shuttle malfunction cuts connectivity to the ground and Chris, her son, makes the knee jerk decision to go after her.
In this breathtaking science fiction spectacle, a strange mechanical device lands on a desolate world and uses the planet to undergo a startling transformation, that has profound implications for an entire galaxy.
Visually beautiful, perfectly directed, but the message could have been clearer
I'm a huge fan of short films and this one was a sweet little gem. The visuals are remarkable for a short as was the directing and score.
The writing/plot could have been better to get the message across that this in fact wasn't a sci-fi, but instead an intimate character study.
The sci-fi narrative unfolds in a pseudo-documentary style that radiates with authenticity while balancing the film's stark human drama.
I don't want to give anything away, but this film is one of those that certainly needs a second viewing, as you will pick out things you missed the first time, and at only 15 mins long, it's very easy to do.
Very enjoyable and a 8/10 from me.
