ERASED a short film
Written and Directed by Gabriela Loza
Eric and Cate live and work on Mars and must fulfil their contract to the all-powerful Erasure Institute. Technology tracks their every word and action, while a mysterious humanoid voice directs their movements. The Erasure Institute promises to remove pain and suffering through a painless but permanent procedure, which is “encouraged and sometimes enforced.” Cate begins to believe that voluntary erasure is her only way out. Can love be erased?
