That powerful un-motivating slacker voice inside me thinks that living in a human zoo ruled by aliens wouldn’t be so bad. You don’t have to worry about work, housing, cleaning, food, or even sex. But then you realize how pointless an existence that is. Can you imagine being made to dress up as some old Vicomte de Valmont with the only thing to look forward to in the day is a lunch made out of pills?

Kepler X-47—not to be confused with the planet Kepler 22b—is a short film directed by Erin Li. It tells the struggles of a young woman caged in a human zoo on an alien planet. She has to decide between a confortable life in the zoo or an unknown future somewhere else.
