Set a few years from now “Reprieve” is a speculative fiction where an illicit use of body-technology interfaces is to rent out brain space to take on other’s painful memories. For a price and for a lease period. This short film is part of a larger storyworld, exploring how our identities are mediated by technology and larger questions of what a soul and persona may be. Or not be.
