This weeks short film is the sci fi story of a young, blind girl stranded on a barren, hostile world, and her struggle to survive, aided only by a damaged robot in orbit, and the love of her brother. It is a surprisingly emotional story, that really delivers a memorable ending.
Written and directed by Christian Kennedy, Star Child is the right kind of sci fi, creating an intense and emotional story, while hinting at a larger world. Or perhaps I should say it’s my favorite kind of sci fi because it does those things.
Check it out.
