PICK OF THE MONTH

ANIARA

Directed by Pella Kagerman and Hugo Lilja

Drugs, orgies, suicide cults… bowling – it turns out there’s not much you won’t resort to when your spaceship is knocked off course and you find yourself on a slow, steady drift into existential crisis. That’s where we find the passengers of Aniara, on a “routine” trip to Mars from an environmentally ravaged earth. Adapted from an epic sci-fi poem, the Swedish fantasy drama is huge in scope, but it’s the human story at the centre that maintains its gravitational pull. As those onboard shift between placated apathy, societal collapse and brutal police state, the sapphic romance between ship employee MR (Emelie Jonsson) and pilot Isagel (Bianca Cruzeiro) is intimate and beautifully portrayed – a strong (if incredibly bleak) reminder that human connection can provide more hope than any rescue mission in the universe.
