ROSA (2011) Short Film: Jesus Orellana


Rosa Short FilmJesus Orellana‘s Rosa (2011) short film begins in “the near future, humanity has disappeared, leaving behind a large megalopolis devoid of natural life. From the destruction awakes ROSA, a robot part of the KERNEL project, mankind’s last attempt to restore the earth’s ecosystem using recovered samples of long-extinct plant species. Wandering among the ruins of the lifeless city, Rosa will soon discover that she is not the only part of Kernel that has awakened.”

We previously posted the Rosa (2011) Short Film Trailer.

Yes. I was waiting for this short film and it does not fail to delivery and impress. Great action, character, and set designs as well. The Rosa short film is beautiful. Highly detailed and tragic. I would love to see a part two and three to this story. There are questions that linger after viewing though: What was Rosa’s purpose? What would Rosa have done if she were alone in that post-apocalyptic world? What was the purpose of the other Kernel robots? Hopefully these questions will be answered in the live-action adaptation being developed.
