quietearth [Celluloid 05.07.10] post apocalyptic trailer short

I don't know how we missed this beauty which played as part of last year's Venice lineup, but luckily our friend Avery pointed the way towards it. It's a post apocalyptic short so let's hope we see a full release soon. And no, I don't know what the deal with the butterflies is.

At the end of the 21st century, cities have fallen into ruin, the air is toxic and the sun is obscured by pollution. Quinto is on the run from his malevolent master and seeking sanctuary in the fabled City in the Sky. Ai, a malfunctioning sex-worker android, awaits deactivation locked in a squalid hotel managed by Dora, a sadistic and abusive transsexual and Nino, her drug-addled son. Through an error at check-in at the hotel, Quinto meets Ai and they forge a relationship that unfolds in an unexpected way.

Multiple clips after the break.

As an Italian, I can't believe there is someone able to produce such things in our apathetic country.

Fabrizio, you have Gabriele Salvatores' Nirvana, with amazing work by Victor Togliani and Sergio Stivaletti.
I think it's still one of the top ten cyberpunk design works in a feature film.
