Tonight, Matthew Lipke premiers his short film, Elixier, which takes place a century into our future, where in New England, access to Water is restricted:
By 2115, the world has been plagued by severe environmental disasters, civil unrest, anarchy and governmental collapse, and pure chaos. Society no longer has easy access to the basic needs of survival, and everyday is a fight to survive. Elixir chronicles the adventures and struggles of a group of three skilled individuals as they traverse the Northeastern United States in search of the new mega-dam, Elixir, built by the water-controlling and ruthless Mulholland Corporation. Without technology or basic necessities, including water, to aid them our group must overcome extreme obstacles including disease, injury, internal moral dilemmas, and Skulks, the mercenary “peace-keeping” militia working for the Mulholland Corporation.
Here’s the trailer:
The film will be screened at Merrill’s Roxy Theater in Burlington, tonight at 7:00pm.
