*website under construction - stay tuned to meet the team, bts blog and more.
Lame White Man is a 10minute, sci-fi, dystopian drama, stop-motion The year is 2060.
The end of times has already happened. It’s the 40th day after the end of times. The Earth is burst up in flames and the ISS-Elpis (Elpis : Hope in Greek) is left in orbit, slowly rotting.
Inside there is Yuri, a Balkan cosmonaut, son of goat pastor, whose dream was to be an astronaut.
Yuri is trapped and he stalls the inevitable ending of his life. And probably of the human race.
In this Gravity setting, Yuri’s meeting with a Flubber-like alien amoeba, is gon- na move the loop towards an ancient tragedy’s deus ex-machina resolution.
Emotional, fast-paced and a symbolic tribute to Haxley, Orwell and Plato, Lame White Man exorcises solitude and distancing, and seeks to push human kind to change route, and rebirth in tune with the Cosmos.
