The Greek sci-fi short “e-Social” which has been making waves at various film festivals recently got accepted into Comic-Con International.
Comic-Con has become one of the most important film showings in North America, in addition to one of the biggest conferences and conventions. A lot of Hollywood blockbusters as well as TV shows with a sci-fi/comic/action slant are shown and promoted at the festival.
“e-Social” has the honor of the being the only Greek film accepted into the festival.
The short takes place in 2035, and is based on an interesting, yet controversial, futuristic premise. The people in “e-Social” can create holograms of dead people based on the information they had uploaded to social media while they were alive.
Anna, the protagonist of the film, tries to create a hologram of her recently deceased husband but soon comes to understand that some things can’t be replaced.
Producer and writer Sotiris Petridis is just 26 years old. “e-Social” was directed by Natalia Labropoulou, and stars Joyce Evidi, Matina Koulourioti, and Christos Papadimitriou.
The film has been accepted into 11 other international festivals, and hopefully means big things to come for the young cast and crew.
Comic-Con International takes place in San Diego from July 9 to July 12.
