Short Film: Auroras

"Auroras" is a sci-fi short set in the 22nd century, where a female cyborg is called away on a mission.  Far from the action film audiences might expect, though, "Auroras" focuses instead on the emotional dynamics of the cyborg's farewell to her lover.  The film features magnificent cinematography awash in an extraordinary array of colors.
"The filmmaker decided to set the story about two women after he saw the iconic picture of Naval Officers Marissa Gaeta and Citlalic Snell kissing after Gatea had returned from extended military service. This then gave the film so much more substance, meaning, and brought a whole deeper dynamic to the story then if it was about a male and a female because it was a more politically relevant story about the time it was being made in. Perfect for science fiction since most sci-fi is not about the future, it’s about the period in which it’s created."
