Heartbreaking Sci-Fi Short Film - EXPO
Here's a beautifully made short sci-fi film called Expo that tells the touching story of a mother who works on the Moon trying to earn money to save her daughter. The movie was directed by Joe Sill from a script written by Dag Shapshak.
The film was shot incredibly well, and the visual effects were clean and solid. I like that it tells a solid human tale in a fantastic and intense sci-fi setting. Here's the synopsis:
Female astro-miner Shona has been mining under dangerous conditions on the moon for the past two years in order to pay for expensive medical treatments in hopes of save her bed-ridden daughter Darla, and now that her tour is completed, a younger astronaut Paige has come to replace her. Shona is reluctant to return to the world she once knew, but in meeting Paige realizes that returning to Earth isn’t where she’ll find peace - she will have to return home.
Enjoy the show!
