Connected short science fiction film is eerily good

CONNECTED popped into my reader from IO9 and I have been obsessed with it since then.

A short film made by Jens Raunkjær Christensen & Jonas Drotner Mouritsen, it is (according to the blurb) a story about survival and greed with a post apocalyptic wasteland as its backdrop.

Survivors of an unknown disaster shuffle through a desolate landscape, as it quickly becomes clear that not everybody has the strength to survive.

It is also eerie and ruthless as hell.

Creepy and horrible enough for ya?

For me there are echoes of the Fallout games, but also of the poetry of Wilfred Owen (never thought I’d namecheck him on here) – particularly Dulce Et Decorum Est.

Your thoughts?
