is a bold new science-fiction film,
a visual, breath-taking analogy
on the essence of human emotion
against the complex new relationship
between man and machine.
ABOUT THE FILM
The film is starring Sebastian Cavazza, a Slovenian actor and one of the biggest stars in former Yugoslavia
EDERLEZI RISING features adult film star Stoya in her first non-porn role. Stoya is also an impressive and influential public figure, feminist activist, writer and columnist of The New York Times, The Guardian and Vice magazine. Apart from having played an exceptional role in the film, Stoya’s interpretation of the role of android is an important conceptual process which metaphorically examines the position of sex workers and the radicalization of their role in the future
EDERLEZI RISING is set in a socialist dystopian future. Milutin is an astronaut sent on a long space flight to Alpha Centauri to deliver an ideology to the colony there. However, on this flight he will be accompanied by a female android, Nimani. The film explores the essence of love and emotion between Milutin and his cyborg companion.
Featuring highly stylized retro-futurist production design, a nod to the likes of SOLARIS and other Soviet-era sci-fi on one side and BLADE RUNNER & cyberpunk aesthetics on the other side.
