The Slows


The Slows

Short Film

In an enlightened future where humans are "accelerated" past their own childhoods, an outsider infiltrates a wilderness compound where a small group of exiles continue to give birth and raise children the "Slow" way. As she risks her life in an attempt to understand their values, she finds herself questioning her own instead.

"The Slows" is currently screening at film festivals.
