Watch the Danish Sci-Fi Western Short “Connected”

Let’s start with the synopsis:

“Set in the distant future, Connected is a story about survival and greed with a post-apocalyptic wasteland as its backdrop. Survivors of an unknown disaster shuffle through a desolate landscape, as it quickly becomes clear that not everybody has the strength to survive.”

I never would have expected such a brilliant science fiction western to come out of Denmark if I hadn’t seen it for myself. The entire short is available here for your online viewing pleasure. Here’s the story behind the creation of this film:

“Shot in deserted Faxe Kalkbrud, Denmark, and directed by Jens Raunkjær Christensen and Jonas Drotner Mouritsen, Connected is a unique short film, a sci-fi western with a tiny budget, but huge ambitions. A relatively small but very enthusiastic and talented crew helped bring this bleak vision of the future to the screen. The film is produced with support from The Film Workshop / The Danish Film Institute.”

How could this project be any better? How about a gorgeous poster!

You can buy the poster here, though they are in very limited supply (only 73 in print). I hope the demand is great and they print more, I know I want one! While I think this short is probably perfect the way it is I wouldn’t mind a District 9-style option for a feature-length version of Connected, would you?
