Christopher Webster [Celluloid 10.07.14] post apocalyptic scifi animation

Director Álvaro Garcia Martinez reached out to give us a look at his stunning new post-apocalyptic scifi short SUMER.

A young boy, Hermes, lives alone in a compartment, the property of the government, which is located close to the wall that delimits the city, an area that is highly guarded by the SSW (SUMER Security Watchers).
