In a parallel present, delivery man Ray Tincelli (Dean Imperial) struggles to support himself and his younger half-brother, Jaime, who suffers from a little-known illness called Omnia. After a series of fruitless hustles, Ray signs up to do gig work for CBLR, a mysterious new company. His job as “cabler” consists of walking deep in the woods to lay cables over miles of terrain and connect large silver cubes linking the so-called Quantum trading market. As Ray lines up seemingly lucrative cabling routes, he meets growing hostility from the other cablers and the threat of robot cablers. Ultimately, Ray will have to choose between helping his co-workers or cashing in on the gig economy.


With this revealing geek dystopia set in a reality not so different from ours, Noah Hutton establishes himself as one of the young future talents of indie science fiction. After its screenings at festivals such as Sarajevo and Fantasia, Lapsis has already been labeled as a cult film by many media such as Variety. Hutton puts science fiction at the service of class criticism by “connecting” his film with titles like Sorry to Bother You and Idiocracy. Just like The Vast of Night screened at the 2020 edition of Americana, Lapsis will undoubtedly be remembered as one of the most original sci-fi films of the years to come at our festival.
