In this short film, we are introduced to the inheritors of the Earth: Antimony, Fluorspar, and Bismuth. Before the event they were simply the materials needed to produce most of our modern technology, now they are godlike entities roaming the interior of the planet. Exploring the terrestrial as a site for communion with our basest desires and deepest regrets, ‘Critical Materials’ takes us through misty snow-clad valleys, derelict caves and underground pools to show us where they live.
‘Critical Materials’ is also the story of future scientist Dr. Laula and her research trip to a supposedly abandoned Earth where a community of survivors are worshipping the materials as mythological objects.
