Vesper | SproutsFF23
Vesper by Kristina Buozyte, Bruno Samper
2022 | France, Lithuania, Belgium | 114 minutes
Sci-fi Vesper explores the class struggle within a domed, post-apocalyptic society short on raw materials. The film reflects on bio-hacking as a tool for fighting global food scarcity, and is an impressive feat of practical world building, considering its modest budget. A dystopian fairy tale for grown-ups, guided by an inspiring young heroine maneuvering her way towards a memorable ending.
