NUWA is a human/robot hybrid that has been infected with a weaponized computer virus. In order to destroy the A.I. superpower oppressing her people, NUWA must plug her consciousness into a global network and deliver the virus payload to the Queen Mother. Along the way NUWA will evade drone servants, connect with old friends and come to terms with her role in a future society that is almost certainly doomed…

Director's Bio

As a self taught filmmaker and musician, Lim constantly looks for ways to merge sound and image together in new and interesting ways. Each film he completes gets him a little closer to finding that perfect combination of audio and visual.

    The VC Digital Posse rides off into places unknown, and into the void steps a new, uncouth class of ruffians hailing from Visual Communications’ vanguard Armed With a Camera Fellowship and UCLA’s Center for Ethnocommunications. At turns callow and visionary, this collection of short works is poised to inspire, surprise, and delight. — Abraham Ferrer
