Are you ready for more exciting post-apocalyptic sci-fi? An excellent Brazilian short film titled Lunatique has arrived online in full after playing at numerous film festivals, including the Sitges Film Festival most recently. The short is directed by cinematographer-turned-filmmaker Gabriel Kalim Mucci, and it's set in a gritty, desolate, ash-covered world. The story is about one lonely woman (Lila Guimaraes) struggling to survive in this world, but she looks quite badass, kind of a bit like Ripley from Aliens. This short has some excellent production design and solid VFX work, which makes it even more thrilling to see. Worth a watch.
