Genesis [Short Film]

GENESIS — Set in an alternate present day, people with super abilities known as “genesis subjects” are hunted down by the government as a larger political debate is happening worldwide.

This is a gritty take on a world filled with people with super abilities. No costumes. No capes.

This is a passion project, inspired by X-Men comics and Steven Soderbergh’s “Traffic”.
