It’s that time of year again when we hand the show off to Troy Bernier, Director of the Miami International Science Fiction Film Festival! As we prepare for 2023’s event (April 14th-16 at the James L. Knight Center / Hyatt Regency Miami) we look back at a fascinating entry from 2022; Apotheosis. Troy sat down with the creators, director Max Pearce along with fellow co-writer and producer Maria Sara Santoro, to discuss their short film.
SYNOPSYS: Selene, a young aerospace engineer, dreams of going to space, but was born naturally in this near-future society where the first generation of genetically engineered humans has come of age and has more privileges than those born like Selene. When her mother loses her job, Selene decides to compete against these genetically engineered humans in order to secure a job position on the first habitable space colony, Rusk Venture’s Ourania. However, she’ll be competing against her friend Fabrizio, Rusk’s engineered son. Their friendship is pushed to the limit as their willpower and determination are put to the test.
