Intriguing short film...
30 May 2020 | by peter88825See all my reviews

I came across this short at the Oaxaca Film Festival in 2019. I felt upon seeing it that it is a really nicely crafted science fiction fantasy story, with an interesting fusion of mythology and social and political themes, hints of German expressionism and the type of surrealism associated with Buñuel and Dalí. There is plenty of mood and style here, unconventional narrative, good cinematography, editing and music. There is definitely a unique feeling of revolution about this film that is particularly admirable in a sea of identikit and play-it-safe filmmaking. I am intrigued to see what the director creates next.
