Advantageous

Based on an award-winning short film, Futurestates, which made the rounds few years back, Jennifer Phang’s Advantageous is set in a near-future metropolis where there is a steep, stark class divide. The lavish wealth outshines the hard poverty and tough economic times faced by the underclass. As is prone to happen in such situations, there is friction between these disparate castes, and within this framework, Gwen (Jacqueline Kim, also the co-writer with Phang) and her daughter Jules (Samantha Kim), must hold onto each other and find hope and joy where they can in this cold, desolate, world as instability shakes their surroundings to the core. This trailer for the short should give you a good feel of what you’re in for, as well as tone and mood. A quiet, introspective kind of sci-fi, this definitely has potential to be something very different.
