Obsolescence is a graduation film from Vancouver Film School.

 

Three ghosts, representing three different generations, keep a portrait of themselves as the unique sign left of their own identity after death. Two of the ghosts have an analog portrait (a black and white photography and a painting), while the third one has a digital portrait contained within a computer. Soon they will experience the obsolescence of technology, which will challenge the preservation of memories and data through time.

 

Written, directed and produced by Andrea Cristini
Original music composed by Chiara Micci
