AUTOPLIOT2023 Official Selection / Etheria Film Night
Directed by Jennifer Zhang
USA | 16:30 min
A lone pilot on a homebound space vessel finds herself trapped in a waking nightmare when her holographic “virtual companion” begins to defy his own programming.
Featured in “Deadline” in 2021 for her ambitious solo-effort film, Charon, hitting the Cannes film market, Jennifer Zhang has emerged as an Asian American filmmaker to watch. The feature, which Dread Central proclaimed was “dominating the festival circuit” as a “brutal exploration of isolation and betrayal” was acquired shortly after by Summerhill Entertainment and will see a 2023 U.S. release.
