quietearth [Film Festival 09.01.09] Australia movie trailer news scifi



We've been following this effort for quite a while, and after it's little blip earlier this year, it's going to finally have it's world premier at the Fantastic Planet Film Festival in Sydney, Australia which runs from October 30th to November 6th. I've seen an unfinished copy, and yes, we're very excited. A low budget scifi extravaganza, Eraser Children was shot guerilla style and has been in the works for over 2 years. It's about a mad world in which a global corporation controls everything and is reminiscent of Brazil.

Synopsis:
In a world of useless products, police brutality, pre-paid dreams and a list of Violations so long if you laugh too loudly you wll be fined, Misner Corporation has invented a new source of energy which has given them a global monopoly on all facets of human life, creating a totalitarian society ruled by one man, Misner.

Anyone not willing to work for Misner's regime, lives underground in a dark world of insane 'system dropouts'. Only coming above ground for the 1 hour of darkness which takes place each day, when a giant ball of rubbish floats between the Sun and the Earth.

Finnegan Wright, a lower level worker at Misner Corp. is taken on an enthralling journey when orced to live underground by one of the 'System dropouts' who convinces Finnegan that he can change the fate of the world by killing Misner.

A satire which comments on the way humans are so easily foolted into buying products they don't need, having ridiculous jobs and worshipping leaders that have no respect for the planet and everything in it.
