Lonely George, a man out of step with the 21st century, is writing an encyclopedia of obsolete things. On his quest to catalogue endangered occupations, he meets Sophie, a cinema projectionist at a silent movie theater, and together they journey to the desert of Death Valley to interview a maverick climate scientist who is predicting the eminent end of the world.
Acclaimed by critics around the world for its poetic beauty, Obselidia is "a true original" (Martin Hoyle, Financial Times). If the world were to end tomorrow, how would you live today?
Winner of two awards at the Sundance Film Festival (Excellence in Cinematography and the Alfred P. Sloan Award) and nominated for two Independent Spirit Awards, Obselidia is "gentle, intelligent, gorgeously made and utterly eccentric." (Todd McCarthy, Variety).
