Bird Hours

Lars and Frances are two young professionals who work day in and day out for Sol Corp, the mega-corporation that owns and runs the entire world. Their routine consists of putting on VR Headsets and transporting their souls into the “cloud,” rendering their bodies lifeless in the real world for 10 hours a day. To ensure their cats are entertained, they play “Bird Hours,” an NPR program that plays recordings of various birds, which are all extinct due to climate change. After reports of absurd catastrophic news events and a long-awaited session of intimacy is interrupted by Sol Corp, Lars smashes his and Frances’ headsets and they escape their apartment into a sun-drenched world of unknowns.

Screened as part of the Narrative Shorts section.
