  • It’s 2035 and Tallinn, now a megalopolis, is managed by ubiquitous computer program called Psychobook. Undercover agents Gagano and his boss Palmer Eldritch are tasked with protecting Psychobook from any threats. When a dangerous virus called “Soviet Union” is detected, the agents are assigned the mission to destroy it. During the mission, when accidentally inhaling a strange gas-emitting substance, Gagano becomes trapped in Betta Ethiopia, a parallel reality where he is considered to be the true heir to the throne. As he tackles the challenge of becoming the new Emperor, a battle breaks out in Betta Ethiopia between the Prime Minister, a firm supporter of the state apparatus and Psychobook, and Reverend Roy, a sect leader who promotes the free use of the substance for truthseeking and liberation purposes. When Gagano befriends Roy Mascarone, a Jesus Christ-like figure, he will learn how to use the substance to travel within realities, knowledge that will finally lead him to the ultimate truth.  

    Director’s Statement: Dystopian sci-fi and Afrofuturism reflect on the processes of globalization from a hypothetical African future that is nothing more than a projection and exaggeration of our satiric and grotesque present. Globalization in Africa is the same as in the rest of the world: stark, naked capitalism.
