SCI-FI-LONDON is the UK’s leading genre event and an internationally recognised launch pad for genre movies. At each festival we have at least a dozen UK premieres.
The festival is now in its 9th year and will take place Wed 28th April – Mon 3rd May 2010 at The Apollo Piccadilly Circus Cinema, London’s most luxurious cinema.
This is possibly this generation's worst nightmare. No television and no computers. The airwaves have gone quiet, the networks have stopped transmitting data, there are no phones and wires have stopped carrying electricity. The inhabitants of a Hungarian seaside town have managed to adapt (at least a lot better than we city folks would), although they still aren't sure how to fill the empty hours. Generators, and car batteries charged by treadmills, supply the electricity to power cinema projectors that can still show celluloid, but there is very little else to keep them amused.
This story follows the lives of three brothers who join together to survive in this disconnected world, as their lives start to fall apart, especially the one brother who suffers insomnia as he can no longer fall asleep in front of the television.
This is not your typical science fiction movie, but a meditation on a world where technology has failed, and the ingenuity of humans to adapt and find solutions.
