Synopsis
Juried: Best Feature

Believing he's the last door-to-door encyclopedia salesman in the world, George decides to write The Obselidia, a compendium of obsolete things. George thinks that love, among other things, is obsolete. In his quest to document nearly extinct occupations, he befriends Sophie, a cinema projectionist who works at a silent movie theatre. Sophie believes that nothing is obsolete as long as someone loves it. When they interview a reclusive scientist who predicts that 80 percent of the world’s population will be obliterated by irreversible climate change by the year 2100, the two must face the question, if the world is going to disappear tomorrow, how are we going to live today? In this quirky film, fateful issues of our time are addressed with a warm sense of beauty, sincerity, and compassion- offering a rare and humane lens through which to view a world increasingly preoccupied with and inhabited by extinction.
