David is shocked to learn that, due to a side effect of climate change, humanity has only a few weeks with enough oxygen left. So far trapped in the machinery of everyday life, he has to find out for himself how he wants to spend the precious last days of his life.
The short movie LO₂SS reduces the complex and long-term consequences of climate change to a dramatically short period of time in order to make the incomprehensible tangible. It is a reflection on loss and the human response in the face of the ultimate end. How does it feel if we as humanity do not change our way of life to stop climate change? What would we lose? What happens to a person when they become a victim of a global failure? And what remains in the end? Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)
The German version of the film (subtitle in other languages available) was completed in December 2020. Selected short film festivals have been requested for the premiere.
