In his feature debut, Moon-Sang Kim creates a futuristic world that is magnificently imaginative and sweeping in scale. <i>Sky Blue</i> is a spectacular animated work that tells a story of love and hope in a world where civilized society depends on pollution to support its existence.
The year is 2142, and humanity's reckless exploitation of the environment has all but ended civilization on earth. Only a small number of elite possessing power and technology thrive under the dark skies inside the palatial city called Delos on a South Pacific island. Delos is fueled by carbon pollution and propagates environmental wretchedness. The Diggers—refugees forced to live in the wasteland surrounding Delos—come to the city seeking asylum, but the elite viciously keep them out. Jay is a female trooper who guards Delos against the Diggers. Her loyalty is tested when she learns that her childhood sweetheart, Shua, is leading a Digger rebellion to end the reign of pollution. Jay must choose between duty, love, and the hope of blue skies.
Director Moon-Sang expertly utilizes cutting-edge, multilayer compositing techniques that combine cell animation, miniatures, and live action with three-dimensional, computer-generated locales. <i>Sky Blue</i> is an important artistic achievement that resonates deeply in today's ecoenvironmental landscape.
