Story Spotlight

Morpheus: "Have you ever had a dream, Neo, that you were so sure was real? What if you were unable to wake from that dream? How would you know the difference between the dream world and the real world?"

The characters inhabiting the world created by Mischa Rozema and PostPanic Pictures for their proof-of-concept short film Sundays, are faced with the same philosophical quandary Morpheus posed to Neo in The Matrix. Sundays is the result of a successful Kickstarter campaign which crowdfunded the US$50,000 needed to turn Mexico city into a distorted dystopia which would have made Philip K. Dick proud of --although as a prisoner citizen of Mexico myself, it didn't require that much of an effort...

The end of the world seems like a nightmare to Ben. A memory of a past life that doesn’t belong to him. When Ben starts to remember Isabelle, the only love he’s ever known, he realises she’s missing in his life. An existential descent into confusion and the desperate need to find out the truth begins. This reality depicts a stunning, surprising and dark world. A world that is clearly not his.

As a matter of fact, this is not the first time Mexico city is featured as a Dicktopia. Arnold Schwarzenegger was the first to realize the city's Sci-Fi potential for his 1990 movie Total Recall.

Not only did the Empire never end, Spanglish is the official language! Here's hoping PostPanic lets us explore it further.

We all have a right to know, and if the government has been suppressing information about other life forms, that's the cruelest hoax of all.
