Three filmmakers have created a mini-series in response to the climate emergency and inspired by Our Time On Earth. A new series is going live each month, here's the first one!
Filmmakers Frederick Bernas and Nico Muñoz mini-series The “Utopians”, follows Fargas as he creates the “Rabdomante” robot, a solar caterpillar that collects condensation in arid deserts. Its name is derived from “rhabdomancy,” a supposedly divine ability to discover hidden water sources or minerals; but how many thousands of these machines would be needed to produce a real change? It seems absurd to think about – but doing nothing at all would be even worse.
We chatted with the filmmakers to get a behind-the-scenes look at making this mini-series.
