First Ever Trailer For Daniel H. Wilson's The Nostalgist Looks Good

Illustration for article titled First Ever Trailer For Daniel H. Wilsons emThe Nostalgist/em Looks Good

Before Robopocalypse was published we were already fanning over Daniel H. Wilson's fiction work, specifically his short story The Nostalgist. And now that story has been turned into a short film, and it looks good. It looks really good. Watch.

Directed by Giacomo Cimini the story is set in the futuristic city of Vanille. Here's the summary from their past Kickstarter:

With properly tuned ImmerSyst eyes™ & ears™ the futuristic city of Vanille can look and sound like a paradise. But the carefully curated life of a father and his son threatens to disintegrate when the father's eyes™ begin to fail. Desperate to avoid facing his own traumatic reality, the man must venture into a city where violence and danger lurk beneath a skim of beautiful illusion


The short is currently making the rounds at festivals, but The Hollywood Reporter just announced that The Nostalgist will be available on VOD, October 15th. And we will 100% be watching.

So from the related article and the write up here, I'm guessing the man's synthetic eyes cast a Victorian illusion-city over the gritty, nightmarish cyberpunk reality and his "son" is actually a robot with his dead son's mind copied to it?
