Event Navigation

‘In a post-apocalyptic future, we’re introduced to a group of humans living in a decrepit, isolated underground vault. The only thing that keeps them going is the promise of The Ark, a mysterious vessel said to be coming to their rescue. But does The Ark even exist?

Like Waiting for Godot transferred to a post-nuclear society, O-bi O-ba is a tale of suffering and hopeless resilience, skewering any idea of redemption or saviour.

This screening is preceded by:
O-bi, O-ba: The End of Civilization by Tim Hawkins, UK 2015, 5 mins
In the far-flung future a Shaman discovers the remains of our long forgotten internet in which billions of lonely and deformed digital souls are trapped and enslaved by an all-powerful cat-god. Tim Hawkins’ surreal, narrative-driven, sci-fi animation asks philosophical questions about what will be left of our digital souls when we’re gone?’ (PCI)
