Director Statement

It’s a funny comedy but discusses a serious question. I am a sci-fi fan, I want to combine Sci-fi and comedy in this film. When human beings are starving, morality and ethics are gone. In 2001: A Space Odyssey, the bone and the spaceship let the humans evolve from apes, in my story, humans degenerate into apes in space when are hungry. One of comedy’s functions is to test moral and social boundaries, So we can talk about a serious question in a hypothetical, absurd, playful situation. This film discusses different cultures, different dietary habits. Different opinions collision in the space.
