«The Whispering Star»
As mankind continued to make devastating mistakes, their numbers dropped drastically. It is peaceful in space. Machines dominate and 80% of the population are robots with artificial intelligence. Humans are now an endangered species in the universe. While science has progressed, humans rarely live to 100. Human existence is just the flicker of a candle flame. Machine ID 722 Yoko Suzuki is an android. She is onboard rental Spaceship Z with its retro interior design. With the onboard computer 6-7 MAH Em, she travels from one star system to another, delivering packages to humans. Boredom is not a concern for androids although space travel can be extremely tedious. She occupies herself with cleaning, recording her voyage log, and sometimes repairing the malfunctioning 6-7 MAH Em. The director Sion Sono established his own film production company Sion Productions in 2014 and «The Whispering Star» is its first production.
