‘We The Others’ is set in 2030 at the fringes of a civilization built on a hundred year old projection of the future. Here live the outcasts whose existence is being predetermined. They all have in common the similar physical characteristics of Down’s syndrome, but in this world, they are the embodiment of everyone who does not live up to the norm and are therefore not at the top of the genetic shopping list for the future. Feared by all as the ‘others’, ‘they’ are in fact most of us.
"We Were Not Made For This World” is a existential sci-fi short film directed by Los Angeles-based filmmaker Colin West McDonald, based on a comic of the same name by cartoonist Paul Hornschemeier that features a rapidly declining robot wandering aimlessly through the desert (via Brian Heater @ laughingsquid.com).
