Dédalo (2013)

Dédalo
Director: Jerónimo Rocha
Writer: Jerónimo Rocha
Cast: Sofia Helena, Frederico Amaral
Part of: /slash Filmfestival
Seen on: 21.9.2015

Plot:
A spaceship with a lone surviving astronaut (Sofia Helena), desperately trying to survive against weird creatures who have entered the ship.

Dédalo is a moody short film that noticeably didn’t have a lot of budget (especially for the CGI), but tries to make the most of it anyway, above all with a great creature design.There’s no real story to it (at least if you don’t consider the title’s mythical meaning, and even then it’s questionable), but for a few minutes of atmosphere it was more than enough.
