SYNOPSIS

Siman stumbles upon a restricted site where the moon landing is being staged and recorded. Suffering dire consequences at the hands of the filming crew, Siman lives his days moving in slow-motion, as if defying gravity. Dismissed by the villagers as a loony simpleton, will he ever get the truth out?

collapse

Equal parts imaginative and ambitious, Yosep Anggi Noen brings his poetic storytelling to this sci-fi realist tale. The film comments on how traumatic events can be swept under the rug by politicians, media and even small communities, leaving only the survivors with recollections of the actual events. The Science of Fictions recently won a Special Mention at the 72nd Locarno Film Festival, in the International Competition section.
