In the sci-fi short GROW, we visit the year 2083 where catastrophic climate change has destroyed much of civilization. The air has also become irreparably polluted.
Most plant life - as well as those who grow them - has been eradicated. As a result, oxygen has become a commodity that must be purchased in order to survive.
Major corporations (it's always damn corporations isn't it?) control the market for air filters, the only means to breathe in this deadly new global environment.
Watch the provocative short GROW here ...
GROW is an outstanding representation of a burgeoning sub-genre known as "cli-fi."
Cli-fi is fiction that speculates how climate change and global warming may affect our environment, economy, technology, governments, and society as a whole.
GROW not only has a provocative premise, but it also skillfully executes said premise with impressive production value, creating a highly realized, haunting, and desperate future.
