This is an unusual one. But I really enjoy reading the works of H.G. Wells and upon viewing this, I felt it kept to the quality of that author.

Beautifully powerful and haunting. A possible project arena for students, a way to share powerful images from literature, science, studies of social sciences, life.
A Solitary World — a breathtaking homage to H.G. Wells, with text adapted from five of his most celebrated works: The Time Machine (1895), The Island of Dr. Moreau (1896), The First Men in the Moon (1901), In The Days of the Comet (1906), The World Set Free (1914).

Kirsty Stark (Producer), Ella Macintyre (PMD) and Victoria Cocks (Writer/Director): "One of the first questions we’re asked when people hear about Wastelander Panda is “How did you come up with the idea?” It’s a strange concept – the meshing of two ideas that don’t necessarily fit – but this seemingly incongruous pairing is one reason we believe the project has had so much attention so far" ...
A great article about a great project!
Victoria wanted to try to translate the experience of her favourite video games to film – where players don’t just have one pathway to follow, but can go out and explore a vast world. She came up with the idea of a post-apocalyptic wasteland. The idea of the protagonist being a panda started as a rhyming joke – Wastelander Panda! – and became more serious over time
