Phi 1.618

  1. Overview
  2. Fact Sheet

In a dystopian future, threatened by their planet's toxicity, immortal asexual biotitans plan their escape. Suddenly, when the calligrapher Krypton sees a forbidden book transform into Gargara, a young impetuous punk, this delicate status quo ruptures. Characterised by expressionism and brutalism, the gifted filmmaker gives us a farcical picaresque adventure in the purest tradition of space opera.
