“Memories make us who we are. Change them and… who do we become?”
The sci-fi short film Remembrance tells the story of Una (Elizabeth Bouckley), a young researcher who, along with assistance from her colleague, Matt (Tom Giles), is using experimental technology to relive a memory from her past.
Una is reliving the last moments she spent with her mother, Angela (Camilla Simson).
Stricken with regret, guilt, and grief over the estrangement that settled in between them, Una pushes the limitations of the unstable technology in an attempt to reach out to her mother one last time.
However, using the technology in this way may require her to pay a very steep price.
Written and directed by Mark Jepson, Remembrance is a poignant and ruminant sci-fi story about the importance our memories have in the construction of our identity - and the risk of what we may lose if we ever gain the capability to alter them.
The short’s overall production value is outstanding, including gorgeous cinematography by Neil Cain. The cast turns in superb performances, and the musical score by Andy Glass is elegant and atmospheric, which perfectly complements the tone of the project.
