ABOUT THE MOVIE


ROSA is an epic sci-fi short film that takes place in a post-apocalyptic world where all natural life has disappeared. From the destruction awakes Rosa, a cyborg deployed from the Kernel project, mankind’s last attempt to restore the earth’s ecosystem. Rosa will soon learn that she is not the only entity that has awakened and must fight for her survival. 

The short-film was created entirely by young comic-artist Jesús Orellana with no budget during a single year. Since it's world premiere at the Seattle International Film Festival, ROSA has been an official selection at film festivals around the world such as Screamfest, Toronto After Dark, Anima Mundi or Los Angeles Shorts Film Festival. In October ROSA was screened at the opening night of the Sitges International Film Festival, considered the world's best festival specialized in genre films.

Following the succesful festival run, the short film has attracted the attention of the major talent-agencies and Hollywood producers. 20th Century Fox will be adapting a Live-Action Feature of ROSA to be directed by Jesús Orellana. It will be produced by Simon Kinberg of Genre Films, along with Scott Glassgold & Raymond Brothers of I Am Entertainment. The script will be based on an original story by Jesús Orellana that will expand from the original short film.
