A young girl is searching for paradise in an endless universe. Her journey ends as the Moon reveals a fragment of the truth. Her belief in the paradise merges with the promise of time and tells the story on the edge of reality. The analogy between pain and hope is visualized by using archived film material and typographic art.

Embarked on a spaceship in the hope of finding a new habitable planet, the human trapped in his own ship after the robot overseer finds every single candidate planet unsuitable. Eventually the human finds a way out, but that will only reveal a dark secret.
The debut film of the Russian animation artist Andrey Zashikhin. Filled with psychedelic images, the sci-fi film is a story of loneliness on a spaceship, whose pilot decides to maneuver through rings of a protoplanetary disk. The film combines a thoroughly worked out science fiction plot and surrealism of the protagonist’s dreams, based on the lyrics of the song. The visual solutions are inspired by the Soviet sci-fi style, and the graphics are stylized by such traditional illustrative materials as charcoal, graphite, and watercolor. The action on the screen is developing in the rhythm of the melancholic track “The Way” by the underground electro-folk group ЭД9М.

Robotic Online Short Film Festival (or ROS festival) is a science fiction short film festival planning to focus on robotics related themes.
We want to create a new space for dialogue between art, science and technology through audiovisual media and around the figure of the robot. The online festival provides a good scenario for promoting social reflection, creativity and artistic work around new realities, as well as opportunities and dangers posed by the technological convergence in which we are immersed.
