LUNAR: A Futuristic Short FilmOctober 31st, 2013
Tyson Wade Johnston directed this short sci-fi film about a future world where prisoners are sent to the Moon for permanent detention and, perhaps, more nefarious reasons.
The film is described: “Set in Los Angeles City, 2057, an outlaw is captured and sentenced to a lifetime of imprisonment on the LUNAR penitentiaries. To reunite with his family, he must become the first convict to escape the corrupt system and return to Earth.”
We love the feel of the future city of Los Angeles and this film reminds us of the destitute future depicted by Neill Blomkamp in films like District 9. The constant surveillance, the accelerated trial conducted by machine, and the thought of permanent detention on a remote world sets the stage for a truly moving story.
