Charging scenes of the present with dystopian speculation and blurring the boundaries between documentary filmmaking and science fiction in the environmentally devastated state of Iowa.

“Both a wordless B-movie thriller and filmic speculation on climate destruction. Emily Drummer’s high concept compositions, uncanny recyclings of science fiction motif, feel heavy with the menace of human meddling (hands poised to fuss at peripheries; breaths weighted through respirators lowering throughout) but the film’s organic matter, a thriving plant life, exists between and beyond each of these interventions, proposing the order and inevitability of a post-human future.”
