KAYDARA (2011) Short Film: Raphael Hernandez, Savitri Joly-Gonfard

Kaydara, 2011

The Kaydara Short Film has premiered. Raphael Hernandez, Savitri Joly-Gonfard‘s Kaydara (2011) is fifty-minute short film set in the world of the Andy Wachowski and Larry Wachowski‘s The Matrix, The Matrix Reloaded, and The Matrix Revolutions. Kaydara‘s plot synopsis: “Kaydara, a bounty hunter who is living separately from the Human Resistance Group, does not believe in the prophecy of ‘the One.’ He sees this so-called saviour as a threat to the awakening of Man’s self-awareness and considers him an enemy. If their paths cross, Kaydara will not hesitate to confront him.”

Not bad. It definitely expands on the mythos of The Matrix universe the way The Matrix games did for it and the way Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles expanded on the mythos of The Terminator universe. Please keep this in mind though when this short film begins: “Don’t be thrown off by ‘rat Neo’ that occupies the first few minutes of the film. It’s not the protagonist.” Watch the Kaydara short film below and leave your thoughts on it. For more short films, check out our Short Film Page.

  • How this could be rewritten by Hollywood:
    The truce has been broken by various acts of terror from man against the machines. Neo has been sighted in various places after the events of the third film. Neo is said to be behind these acts of terror in a hero-complex desire to be needed as he was before. However he has full support from most humans who never wanted a truce to begin with, rather they wanted full destruction of the machines.
    Kaydara stays out of the human-machines war, preferring human-human bounty instead. He despises neo but has never seen him and no one can track him. However as his contracts on humans continuly lead him toward neo..he begins to grow suspicious. We find a scarred Trinity has actually been the one who has hired Kaydara, and that the machines have reverse-engineered a neo for themselves. It was the machines who sent this bastard-copy neo to create the terror against themselves and re-ignite the war in hopes of getting rid of all the humans at once with a trojan horse attack from their beloved savior.
