Official Selection Trailer 2015: Director Sophia Savage’s Total Moon

Sophia Savage’s experimental film Total Moon was showcased at Aesthetica Short Film Festival 2015, as part of a celebration of both emerging and established filmmakers. The work follows the Maas siblings as they bring their sister home to Big Sur after a suicide attempt, and struggle to reintegrate her into their unusually intimate way of life.

This year’s festival is open for entries, including diverse and imaginative responses to the ever-growing medium. Categories are wide-ranging, from Music Videos and Experimental shorts to Comedy and Animation. The Official Selection of films will be shown in 15 venues across the City of York from 3 to 6 November 2016.

Submit your short film until 31 May. For more information, visit
