Neat film shows that even dystopian nightmares can have happy endings

Dystopian visions of the future always portray scenarios where humans have destroyed Earth and turned it into a desolated and almost uninhabitable place. But our planet probably doesn’t really care. It will just wait us silly humans out until we disappear and then flourish again just as beautiful and full of life as before.

Sumer is a perfectly crafted animated short directed by Álvaro GarcÍa. It tells the story of a young man living in a dystopian version of the Earth where the ionosphere has weakened dramatically. Transforming the planet into a hostile place that’s at the mercy of meteors.

Brilliant eye for detail both in the animation and choice of direction. This is the kind of short which gives enough info to leave me wanting more. “Perfectly crafted” is a great way to explain SUMER.
