World Premiere


New Voices Competition
| Canada, Israel | 15 MINUTES | English, French

Platisapiens is a surrealist work of eco-fiction, an invitation to explore human influence on the environment, and, inversely, an exploration of how the environment affects human evolution. This speculative, playful, and ironic piece imagines a future where plastic and organic life merge to create a new life form. Viewers will journey back into prehistory to discover that they share the same origins as plastic until they finally mutate into Plastisapiens, and discover the Plastosphere.
