2056, far, far away from the Earth. Hannah and Gavin are sent to the Rubikon space station to work on the promising research of geneticist Dimitri Krylow. The latter has succeeded in cultivating genetically modified algae that provide energy, oxygen and food. In short, perfect self-sufficiency! In the meantime, the previous crew returns to Earth. But a huge brown fog starts to envelop our blue planet and instantly kills all the passengers of the capsule. On board of the Rubikon, the vibe is pretty downbeat. The three survivors just witnessed the collapse of the entire terrestrial ecosystem. And they don’t know if they’re the only humans still alive. Weeks and then months go by and the precious algae keep growing. But then, one day, they receive a call for help from Earth. There’s still life on the doomed globe. But their euphoria quickly turns into doubt, as they’re faced with a dilemma. Either they rush headfirst into the toxic mist or they stay put in the endless immensity of space. Well, we don’t want to budge in, but it was also a bad idea to answer the call for help in ALIEN.
A huge Austrian surprise that rivals the greatest American science-fiction films! Visually sumptuous, with sets signed by Johannes Mücke (INDEPENDENCE DAY, MOONFALL), Magdalena Lauritsch’s film combines everything we love from sci-fi space flicks: a planetary crisis, plenty of action and essential questions about our humanity.
