IKARUS is a short film about extraordinary times, made during extraordinary times. It’s a glimpse into a feature project about the “have nots” and their struggle against the inevitable tide of progress. It’s a realization and a confrontation of my greatest fears- the future of humanity and our planet. The shoot was cut short due to covid- but the team still persevered- as will humanity.
