Christopher Webster [Celluloid 02.27.11] movie news short scifi gallery



Peaceforce is a Danish scifi short currently in post-production and is directed by Peter Gornstein who has worked as a concept artist on a few scifi features including Starship Troopers and Contact. It's about a future devasted by econmic collapse ... and a rampaging elephant. Probably why it was originally titled "The Elephant."

Synopsis:
We are in Copenhagen in 2045, where a global economic collapse has left humanity on the brink of total anarchy.

This is where we encounter Daniel - a young and inexperienced Peace Force Officer. He volunteers to take off on an unusual mission – there is talk among the locals of an elephant that has gone berserk leaving dead and injured in its wake.

Everyone knows that elephants no longer exists - still Daniel feels obliged to help these unfortunate people, but before long he is in over his head. What do you do when your good intentions suddenly collide with the relentless reality? Are you willing to walk the line and take on the consequences?


No footage for this one yet, but we've got some stills and the film's poster after the break.

In Denmark in 2045 everyone rides in style!
The premise for this must have been Douglas Adams's:
"-- Zaphod and Arthur in a certain death situation over Magrathea.
"And wow! Hey! What's this thing coming towards me very fast? Very very fast. So big and flat and round, it needs a big wide sounding word like... ow... ound... round... ground! That's it! That's a good name -ground!
I wonder if it will be friends with me?"


-- For the sperm whale, it wasn't.
"Oh no, not again."
