We’ve recently found ourselves enchanted by the British series Black Mirror. When science fiction first began to appear in film and on television, we hoped this is what would happen.
After the monster features, and after the space opera and superheroes, we knew there would eventually be a place for thoughtful, insightful explorations of how technology affects and changes us.
This short film looks like something that would have appeared on the anthology series, except that it’s French. (and isn’t the British television forbidden by law to present such?)
This beautifully crafted SF film explores the possibility that there might be such a thing as too much help.
We are always enchanted by the minds of modern short filmmakers; the ones who understand that 100 minutes is no longer the gold standard for movie length.
You can rub elbows with some of the most creative filmmakers in the SF Bay Area if you circle your calendar for Saturday, Dec 10th, and make sure to get to the Meet & Greet at the Octopus Literary Salon in Oakland CA.
More information can be found here.
The event begins at 3:30 and runs until 5:30. In addition to seeing some of the top films from this past season of the 48 Hour Film Project in San Jose and San Francisco, you will also get to meet some of the top filmmakers and organizers.
It’s a good bet you’ll have fun.
