Watch: Intriguing Trailer for Italian Sci-Fi Short Film 'City in the Sky'
"A fugitive slave, a defective android…" Time for a quick break from our usual to check out the trailer for City in the Sky, an Italian sci-fi short film that looks very interesting, to say the least. The trailer is up on Vimeo (via TheMovieBox) and is just a quick tease for the full-on 30-minute short that you can actually rent on iTunes already. City in the Sky comes from director Giacomo Cimini and I'm not even really sure I can explain what's going on, but it looks intriguing. There's a few unique digital sci-fi elements wrapped around some kind of story involving some pretty girl with butterflies. I may just rent it. Has anyone seen the short?
