Exodus [Kiran Dhoot, UK, 2018]

Humanity and trust are both called into question as desperation for survival erupts into paranoia and violence in this post-apocalyptic sci-fi short. Directed by Kiran Dhoot, Exodus tells the story of three civilians who have taken refuge in an underground bunker following a cataclysmic solar event that has triggered a mass evacuation and has left many in the lowest strata of society (our protagonists included) helpless and stranded.

The film opens with the earth seen from the outer regions of space being swept up by large waves of radiation from the sun whilst we hear the sound of cross talk from global radio broadcasts
