Set in a present-day alternate reality, a new and revolutionary form of the internet is booming, resulting in a plethora of gig-economy jobs that see its new hires laying out miles and miles of network cables in remote parts of the world. Desperate to cash in on this thrilling new venture, small-time hustler, Ray Tincelli, snags a spot in this growing market in hopes of better supporting himself and his very sick younger brother. But not everything is as it seems. When Ray sets out to begin cabling a remote forest, he encounters a shifty culture of AI robots, cablers, and intensely hostile, suspicious workers. This completely singular sci-fi adventure builds a unique fictional world that looks at the unnerving intersection of technology, class, and wealth with a startling specificity and perceptive eye. Simultaneously hilarious and bizarre, LAPSIS is a feature film unlike anything you’ve ever quite seen before and perhaps nods to a future that might very well not be that far off. — R.J.T.
