Presented by Houston
Earth is dying and all of humanity has deserted. All except Martha, whose faulty escape pod now leaves her trapped and alone, in infinite orbit above the atmosphere. With her only company the ravaged Earth below, Martha decides to kill herself; but that’s when her radio springs to life…
Using live music and video projection, Houston presents a DIY Sci-FI that explores loneliness, nostalgia, what’s important about our planet and what we’d miss if it were gone.
