Plot:

A science-fiction short film based on a story by NY Times best-selling author Daniel H. Wilson (Robopocalypse, Amped). In the futuristic city of Vanille, with properly tuned ImmerSyst Eyes & Ears the world can look and sound like a paradise. But the life of a father and his young son threatens to disintegrate when the father's device begins to fail. Desperate to avoid facing his own traumatic reality, the man must venture outside to find a replacement, into a city where violence and danger lurk beneath a skim of beautiful illusion.

The Nostalgist (2014) Review:

This short film is a creation of filmmaking genius. The basic story by Daniel H. Wilson is as close to Philip K. Dick as you can get and still stay original, and Cimini has brought the tale to the screen with all the finesse of a huge Hollywood budget. Lambert Wilson as Papa drives the character elements of the adventure with all the quality you have come to expect from such a solid actor. The flicks between filtered scenes of nicety and the broken down neon mess that Vanille actually looks like are edited together in such a way that, even though you were expecting the plot twist when it happens, you are still left in awe.” — thecultden.com
