planet b234

Vail Film Festival Write up!

by Clarke Reader

Delicate business is being done in married couple Keelie Sheridan (@keeliesheridan) and Jorge Luna’s (@jorgelunadj) film, “planet b234” @planetb234, which is making its world premiere at the @vailfilmfest. The sci-fi fable weaves in nods to classics like “Close Encounters of the Third Kind” and “Annihilation,” as the story of a father and son dealing with a painful separation unfurls. The film blends science and the surreal to moving effect as this most primal familial relationship goes under the microscope. The end result, like life, brims with even more questions to consider. In a post-screening Q&A Sheridan, who directed and co-wrote the film, and Luna, co-writer and lead actor, spoke about the truths embedded in the narrative (the film contains elements of his relationship with his son, who also stars in the film) snd the challenges of a first feature. Those looking for reality in the unreal will find a lot to like here.
