Watch The Exclusive Trailer For Sci-fi Feature EMBERS
Finding deeply thoughtful and rich Sci-fi for the big and small screen always seems like an up hill battle. Even with more adult fare like Ex Machina finding audiences, this kind of work is once in a blue moon.

Enter: Embers, Claire Carré's tale about the survivors of a global neurological epidemic. In other words, this is a world post-memory. Already making waves late last fall on the festival circuit, and wrapping up the 22nd Slamdance Film Festival this Thursday, January 28 at 5:30, Carré's debut feature is utterly humane sci-fi at its most soul stirring (yes, a full review is coming next week).

We at ScreenAnarchy have no doubt Carré will be going on to exciting things in the very near future. Today, we invite you to watch our exclusive teaser trailer for the film, which stars Jason Ritter, Iva Gocheva, Tucker Smallwood, and Greta Fernandez.

Looks very intriguing. The production design and settings are compelling.

..i SO Agree with that sentiment.

.i have that EXACT same pensive/tentative Hope with a small panoply of other films..
While Not being sci-fi by any stretch of one's imagination -- i was lucky enough to catch ROOM over the weekend. ..wasn't sure it'd be released wide enough...

VERY Worth-While, imho.
If you have yet to see this one; see it. VERY Impressive.

I know Room is coming here and I do intend to go see it. I've read only great things about it. It was the popular favorite at last year's Toronto Film Festival. I still have to see Spotlight and Son of Saul the latter was a favorite at the Cannes Film Festival and they're both playing here in Ste. Adèle. We are lucky to have one of the best independent cinema in all of Quebec, not a chain, not a multiplex but a good old fashioned theater with a slew of great movies (8 viewing rooms in total). The owner has discovered the magic combo, alternating days for showing the English films in their dubbed French versions and then showing the original. We also have original films in French+foreign films with French subtitles in their original versions. The bonus: 5 minutes away walking. YEAH!

I am SO jealous at the moment..
THAT,. IS AWESOME though..

*although, come to think of it -- i'm not sure my state of monetary being could tolerate being close to such an art house as that of which you speak .!!

......where i'm at - we're often VERY Lucky and Privileged indeed to get "Room" type fair. (Intellectual, Smart, Savvy, Thought-Provoking and the like).
I am quite happy (and a little -- ...shall I say proud ..?) that the likes of The Homesman, Trance, Snowpiercer, Dead Man Down, How I Live Now, and Cloud Atlas HAVE been in my immediate vicinity.

Yes well we have to choose our hobbies/obsessions judiciously. There are special nights when it's cheaper,that's the time to go. Caught a list of movies you named saw them all except two we might share the same taste in films. Going to see Son of Saul tonight, these little movies appear but don't usually last that long...catch them when you can.
