IO Last

In the near future, human activity has turned the atmosphere toxic, killing all animal life and a majority of humans. The remaining population now resides in a makeshift colony aboard a space station orbiting Jupiter’s moon, Io.


A woman wanders around a desolate landscape, retreats to her mountaintop home and tends her garden, bees and corresponds with a friend on Io. Nothing much happens.

Then a man turns up, he has apparently been sent to pick her up for the last flight to Io. Nothing much happens, then the film ends.

It looks like the story has potential to go somewhere, be unexpected or reveal some unknown truth. But no, it’s just a film-maker trying to be ‘arty’ and make some unknown message to other arty film types.
