Would you ever accept a space mission to unravel the origins of everything? What if you had no way to return? Would you rather send a machine instead? What if your robot had conscience? What makes us human anyway? As a civilian, would you conform with the idea of trying to discover what created the universe, when you might be facing unresolved adversities right here on the planet? What is the actual role of corporations on a society? MONAD explores these concepts through the last days on Earth of James Hoshimiya, chosen for a mission without return into the depths of space… In this cyberpunk world a single life is sacrificed in order for the collective to advance. Presented at one of our screening events, you can now watch this 10min short by Larissa Saldarini, starring Adam Sugawara and Kiara Ueno.
