quietearth [Celluloid 02.09.09] movie news scifi dystopic



Hail Misner, that corporate control freak! We've been following this Australian guerilla-shot scifi dystopic beauty for some time now, and while we eagerly await the full trailer as shooting is finally finished after 2 years, you can check out the teaser and a little message from the great Misner after the break.

In a world of useless products, police brutality, pre-paid dreams and a list of Violations so long if you laugh too loudly you wll be fined, Misner Corporation has invented a new source of energy which has given them a global monopoly on all facets of human life, creating a totalitarian society ruled by one man, Misner. Anyone not willing to work for Misner's regime, lives underground in a dark world of insane 'system dropouts'. Only coming above ground for the 1 hour of darkness which takes place each day, when a giant ball of rubbish floats between the Sun and the Earth. Finnegan Wright, a lower level worker at Misner Corp. is taken on an enthralling journey when orced to live underground by one of the 'System dropouts' who convinces Finnegan that he can change the fate of the world by killing Misner. A satire which comments on the way humans are so easily foolted into buying products they don't need, having ridiculous jobs and worshipping leaders that have no respect for the planet and everything in it.

Hail Misner!
