True Skin is a short film writer, directed and stared in by Stephan Zlotescu which depicts a world in which we’ve become colonised by technology. The plot has a tech-thriller edge to with, and captures a world that brings back memories of the cyberpunk worlds of William Gibson, Neal Stephenson and Pat Cadigan. The film’s official web site gives the following synopsis:
True Skin – A sci-fi short set in the not too distant future where augmentation is the way of life. For Kaye, still a natural, augmenting will help him keep pace in this now hyper-paced world. However, after acquiring an off-market prototype, Kaye quickly finds himself fighting not only for his own humanity, but something much larger.
I like the film – it’s short, snappy and gets to the point, something that seems to point to the short film as a pitch for something longer or as a proof of concept film.
