Dark Sky Films to release new Russian sci-fi COMA
This is the 2nd Russian sci-fi that I have written about recently. This is great news. Russia really delivers some breathtaking and original sci-fi. Even if they ain’t as dark and violent as I would hope for, their original approach is almost unlike anything we have seen with their films reminding us of Neill Blomkamp-esque sci-fi rather than Disney+
Here is the official press-release
After a tragic accident, a young architect wakes up in a dystopian world: COMA.
Here, reality is made from the memories of people who have fallen into a comatose state. Cities, rivers and the sky all flow in and out of each other-fragmented and unstable just like our memories. The common laws of physics don’t exist and nightmarish reapers roam the land spreading death. Having lost most of his own memory, the architect must develop new skills to survive and adapt to the chaos around him. On his search for a way back to reality, he joins a rogue group of fighters and discovers a secret that will affect their lives forever.
