Clarke and Ejiofor – parents-to-be
in the trailer Pod generation Emilia Clarke and Chiwetel Ejiofor carry around a glowing plastic egg, literally life growing out of their mother’s body. By the end (one can imagine) of the twenty-first century, women who are increasingly busy with work will no longer give birth in the traditional way in order to share the burden of pregnancy with their partners. This is the premise of the latest work by Sophie Barth, director and writer of this comedy, a satire on humanity and the future that could become a new cult. The merit of the script (in the video, the dialogues seem very funny), as well as the duet of the main characters, who, showing doubts and insecurities, turn out to be very human in a context in which there seems to be very little human.

A SATIRICAL COMEDY ABOUT HUMANITY
What is left of the couple and the joy of birth in a world where babies are born from artificial pods? Is progress always good for humanity? An old but always tempting question for those who write stories for the big screen. A lot of thought intersects in this poignant yet seemingly light-hearted comedy and dazzling photography. The cast, along with the two lead actors, also includes Wynette Robinson, Katherine Hunter, Rosalie Craig and Jean-Marc Barr as the Founder of a dark company that controls an AI-dominated future.
