Michael Candy, ‘Ether Antenna’

In alumnus Michael Candy’s (Golden Solution, 2014) short film Ether Antenna, actor-robots enact popular Buddhist narratives set against the backdrop of the Nepalese landscape both serene and urban.

Set in three parts, it follows the story of some ten+ robots on a journey inspired by the Tibetan Buddhist tale of Avalokitesvara who, upon hunting a deer, became deeply moved by its death and wore its skin as a reminder of suffering and compassion. The narrative also draws from Sakyamuni, who sacrificed himself to feed a starving family of tigers.
