Eye candy: Rosa

Jesús Orellana’s dark sci-fi short Rosa has been grabbing a lot of headlines since its premiere at the Seattle International Film Festival earlier this year.

Created on a minimal budget in little over a year, the film has featured everywhere from Wired to USA Today, with one reviewer calling it the “geek event of the year”.

And now, with the entire thing having just been released on Vimeo, you can decide for yourself whether all that praise is justified.

Expect to see sexy cyborg Rosa awaken in a post-apocalyptic world to battle a malevolent entity bent only on her own destruction (y’know, business as usual for a dark sci-fi short) and some gorgeous moody visuals.
