“What would you do if you only had 72 hours to solve the global climate change crisis?”

Five projects have been selected for ¨Microtheater Miami in Shorts¨ and will be presented from September 4th (one per week) on Fridays via our Youtube channel and Saturdays on IGTV Instagram, at 12PM each day.

Due to the the quality of the projects received, the committee has decided to select 5 instead of 4 projects.  Please find below the list of the selected works:

  • Un mundo nuevo. Corto original de Florencia Laval y Lucas Suryano (Buenos Aires, Argentina)

The Lilliputian Pill. Original work by authors Lara Lom and Helen Lom (London/ Geneva).
Only available in English.

The world as we know it is in crisis. The temperatures are rising up to 120 Fahrenheit or 50 Celsius in most parts of the earth.  Many animals are already extinct.  The majority of glaciers and ice shelves have disappeared.  Famine, floods, drought and hurricanes are ravaging all continents.

An emergency international summit is called in Geneva, Switzerland.  After years of acrimony about how to address the climate change crisis, representatives of all the countries of the world finally agree that the apocalyptic situation requires drastic and urgent action.  Failure to act is no longer an option.  A treaty is signed by all countries whereby they commit to a concrete solution. 

The solution and its implementation are the subject of this “serious comedy”.  The suspense builds up until we hear the 12 gongs of Big Ben in London as the countdown.

Ha llegado el momento crucial para probar la denominada “raíz madre” que podrá cultivarse y resistir cualquier ambiente, multiplicar la flora y generar ecosistemas, pero no queda más tiempo, el biólogo carga en sus hombros la compleja tarea de hacerla germinar en menos de 72 horas.

 

Un mundo nuevo. Corto original de Florencia Laval y Lucas Suryano (Buenos Aires, Argentina)

Un hombre
Un plan
Nuestra única esperanza
 
Cuando habitamos un mundo que está completamente devastado, cuando las esperanzas ya casi no existen y las agujas del reloj se aceleran. Necesitamos alguien que nos ayude a enfrentarlo, nos guíe para sobrevivir, un salvador.
Juan Carlos Bienestar dejó de lado los escenarios para encauzarse en una lucha, nuestra lucha con un solo fin, salvar al mundo. 

Él tiene un plan y volvió a la televisión para contarlo.

When a renowned climate scientist with keys to solving the global climate crisis is kidnapped, and her life is threatened unless $10 million in cash is paid to her kidnappers within 72 hours, two detectives stumble upon a pre-recorded video that could lead to her rescue. But even after they establish contact with her, a quick rescue proves far from likely…
