Temple Sci-Fi Short Film

"It's toxic… like human begins. I don't know what's going to kill to me - this filthy air? Or those fires that's eating me from the inside." Today's must watch short film is a martial arts sci-fi short called Temple, from director Nguyen-Anh Nguyen, the same guy behind The Akira Project previously. Set in the future where cybernetic enhancement as common, one desperate man fights another to take his bionic arm in order to help someone else who needs it to survive. There are some sleek visuals, and at least one okay fight scene in this. It's all designed to sell a full feature, so of course by the time it's over you still want to see more. Enjoy.

Description from Vimeo: 2045 A.D. A new genetic disease is causing humans to reject their own organs. Cybernetic enhancements are the only means to survive. One desperate man is forced to steal cybernetic implants to save an innocent life. Temple is a concept for a feature film, produced by the same team that made The Akira Project previously. This short film is directed by up-and-coming filmmaker Nguyen-Anh Nguyen (see more if his work on Vimeo), from a screenplay by Nguyen-Anh Nguyen & Santiago Menghini, starring Osric Chau & Yue Qi.
