Greek premiere

In 2085, the planet resembles a vast desert. Ecological devastation has brought civilization to its knees; the human species is on the face of extinction. A handful of Earth’s last survivors are recipients of a mysterious call to meet up in Athens. Jo, a 17-year-old boy of African origin, is destined to become the world’s last moviemaker, capturing the last-gasp moments of human presence. A tale of doom that plants the seed of hope, while exalting cinema’s fate-changing power.
