[INHUMAN LOVE] – a short film highlighting the urgency to save our Mother Earth before we run out of time. This is brought to light by a symbolically poignant (yet poetic) and dark (yet beautiful) tragic love story set in the near future, between a subject “SI” and a soldier, RX. SI, a consultant who works at an evil dark underground “auction house”, disguised as a museum by day, mistakenly enchants RX and starts a forbidden love story. Although RX’s love and passion for SI is so strong, he is too late in saving her.
Our short film, merging fashion, costumes, hair/makeup art, visuals & original music, is to remind everyone that “we must take action for the things we love, before we run out of time.” #climatechange #inhumanlove #motherearth
