Science Fiction Documentary


In Minh Quý Trương’s striking second feature, a man living on Mars in the year 2045 examines footage brought back from his encounters with an indigenous community in the jungles of Vietnam. As he experiments, his thoughts drift from matters of identity, aesthetics, and the politics of image making, to ritual burial practices, to the seen and unseen forces which shape cultures.
