The fight for the future has begun—right here in Adelaide

The year 2067: Earth is on the verge of collapse. After years of doing too little to reverse climate change, plant life is extinct and there is a dramatic reduction in available oxygen. With no cure in sight, humanity builds a quantum time machine that pings the future in search of a connection with a possible solution founded by our descendants. They receive a response: a message from 400 years in the future that simply reads “Send Ethan Whyte”. Unwittingly, Ethan, a reclusive utility worker, barrels into the future as the only hope for his species, and his sick wife. He arrives in a new world, completely alone, and begins to uncover an unthinkable conspiracy. Adelaide-filmed sci-fi from one of our most skilled visual effects maestros, with a star-studded Australian cast headed by Kodi Smit-McPhee, Ryan Kwanten and Deborah Mailman, all combine to make this one of the must-see titles of the festival.
