Written and directed by Sebastian Savino, Entropic, is a short film about a scientist who encounters colliding universes while trying to uncover the meaning of life. This futuristic parody splits between two universes, and meets in the middle disrupting a small town grocery store robbery in another word. There our scientist finds the unlikely answer to his conundrum.
Shot between dual realities, using great juxtaposition we see two different sets of people ultimately searching for the same answer. A whimsical score and two likable villains create the setting in this comedic exploration of life’s bigger questions. What we find is that sometimes the answer lies in the question. Whether aimlessly drifting through life, or intensely working to quantify it, we are all caught at the same turning points where only looking within can put meaning to the mystery. Reminiscent of the Big Bang Theory with it’s quirky wit, this short film is good for a laugh and even an introspective moment if you’re up for contemplating coexisting galaxies.
Entropic is an official selection of the 2017 New York City Independent Film Festival and 2017 Best Director winner.
