This short is just awesome. It is so beautifully shot and has such luxuriantly ominous, alienating colours and tone until the breakthrough. A very clever musing on the connection between consciousness, social identity and virtual reality, the plot rolls inevitable on through private human moments to online digital attacks and back again, culminating in social disaster on the grandest scale. Such imagination, and great skill. Looking forward to seeing more work from this film house.
