Title: Grounded
Post by: Mac on September 27, 2012, 04:30:14 pm

Let me suggest just watching it the first time through and not try to understand what is going on.

Directed by Kevin Margo and Barrett Meeker / Written by Kevin Margo

One astronautís journey through space and life ends on a hostile exosolar planet. Grounded is a metaphorical account of the experience, inviting unique interpretation and reflection by the viewer. Themes of aging, inheritance, paternal approval, cyclic trajectories, and behaviors passed on through generations are explored against an ethereal backdrop.

Visually, Grounded is stunning. Plot-wise it makes no sense. I don't think the "writer" was interested in telling a story, but only had 'ideas' for what would look cool on the Special FX end of things.
