Overture Short Film. Dan Sachar‘s Overture (2012) short film stars Miko Ben Porat and Nili Sachar. Overture‘s plot synopsis: “The abstract story of a lone survivor lost in a dying world. A man struggles to connect pieces from his daily scavenging routine and bits from his repressed memory. When a woman appears in his desolate forest world, she’s intent on making him face his past and consequent fate.”
One reviewer’s take on Overture:
With his latest science fiction, Overture, Sachar more than solidifies the filmmaking prowess his previous effort hinted at. Rich with symbolism, light on dialog, moody and languid, Overture is poetic sci-fi at its very best; If you will… a post-apocalyptic pastoral.
The director’s statement on Overture:
I would like to consider “Overture” as a poetic sci-fi film. The time and world on screen populate the film as characters in their own right. Similar to the films which inspired it, this film is not meant to be sealed with an absolute conclusion, but rather remain open for individual interpretations. It is a story which encourages the viewer to think and draw their own take on who the characters are, their role in that decaying world, and what their relationship is with our own world.
