Find out more about the film:

 

“A Universal Love Story” is a short fantasy drama about the possibility of finding love in an impersonal world in the distant future, where everyone is so focused on himself, that it seems almost impossible to connect to another person.

All that’s left is the memory of love and the hope to experience it one more time. It seems that sometimes it takes a miracle from a different universe to start a revolution.

As the title suggests, it is a universal story about characters with different backgrounds in an undefined time and space. It is a very visual and symbolic film that can be watched several times and each time, one can find a different meaning.

“A Universal Love Story” is one of the few films shot in Esperanto.

NEW SHORT FILM “THE REDHEAD”

Aven likes to take off his mind by spending his free time in a virtual reality game, which is set in a mysterious, seductive and ambiguous world. This fantasy world is the perfect contrast to his rather boring every-day life, that is determined by a monotonous callcenter job.

 

Soon this game threatens to take over his life and Aven gets obsessed with a mysterious red-haired woman. What started as a game, eventually becomes bitter reality, where boundaries are non-existent. Has this game become reality or is reality nothing more than a game?

Joey Jordan
Autumn Bartholetti
Myra Eetgerink
Nicole A. Zalewska

NEW SHORT FILM “It’s getting darker every day”

In a world where light has become a luxury, a young woman who has been living in the darkness for the last couple of years, faces the last minutes before she is going to see the daylight again.

ALINA a young hard working woman, feels like she has won the lottery, because today it’s her turn to leave the darkness for one whole day. While waiting to be picked up to start her adventure, she has mixed feelings about it and can’t decide wether she should be the happiest person in the world or if it would be better to continue living without this experience, that could change her life forever.

“It’s getting darker every day” is a short science fiction drama that leaves a lot of room for different interpretations and makes the audience constantly wonder what has really happened and what is going to happen. Has “Alina” gone crazy yet? Why is she on her own? And what about that baby that we never see, but keep hearing? Is it all in her head?

While trying to figure out her world, we experience the same as she does, the constant sensation of darkness and the only source of light Alina has: a match that only provides her with enough light for a few seconds at a time.

New Short Film in Esperanto- “A Universal Love Story” (“Universala amrakonto”)

“A Universal Love Story” is a short fantasy drama about the possibility of finding love in an impersonal world in the distant future, where everyone is so focused on himself, that it seems almost impossible to connect to another person.

“A Universal Love Story” is one of the few films shot in Esperanto. I chose Esperanto, because it helps the idea of creating something universal in an unknown future, spreading love around the world and making people communicate with each other again. And who knows maybe in the future Esperanto will take over the world! I think it’s a beautiful language with a lot of potential.
