LX 2048 – Interview with Writer Director Guy Moshe

“A fatal ill man tries to secure the future of his family in a world where the toxicity of the sun forces people to stay inside during the daytime.”

Writer Director Guy Moshe chatted with Gadi Elkon about everything LX 2048 and so much more!

It is 2048. Mankind has by now destroyed the ozone layer to such a degree that normal human beings cannot be out in daytime. People spend their waking hours at night and almost everything is done inside the virtual realm. From work to school to socializing, most people just stay home and conduct their affairs from their Virtual Reality designated spaces. Mental depression has become so prevalent that the entire population is required to take the state issued pill 001LithiumX.
In this new world order, Adam Bird is a rare breed. Adam insists on waking up during the day. He insists on leaving his house and going to work in a physical office. He has 3 kids in a time when most people barely breed, and he adamantly refuses to take 001LithiumX, fighting to stay human in a world that is rapidly transforming into the artificial.     LX 2048

 

LX 2048 surprised me on so many levels.  I found it intriguing from the opening title sequence that reenacted the universe from Big Bang to the pill 001 LithiumX.  Writer-Director Guy Moshe’s mixture of dark comedy and emotional family drama hits a perfect blend.  When most Sci-Fi films dive deeply into the dystopian dilemma Guy’s film pushes across a more human sympathetic quality.  James D’Arcy’s portrayal of Adam Bird is the everyman role but his deterioration holds such real elements.  We as an audience feel his struggle and pain, but the wild ending completely flips the notion of self on it’s head.

The visual effects are solid and showcase Guy’s continued love of the film format.  The film comes down to the human interactions.  D’Arcy’s scenes with Anna Brewster (Reena Bird – wife), Delroy Lindo (Donald Stein) and James himself (!) really shine brightly.

Overall a lovely gem of a film that easily endeared itself to me.  I enjoyed this future world so much more than Nolan’s epic TENET.

I’ll even share the one liner I sent the PR team for the film.

Guy Moshe’s sci-fi film LX 2048 highlights the many real concerns and fears of our every expansive technologically dependent society through the gaze of one family.

 

But lets allow Guy the chance to talk about his wonderful film!!

Enjoy as we discuss the tremendous cast, the visual effects (including that opening credit sequence), the witty sense of humor in the film, the nods to Shakespeare and so much more.
