AI Judi Dench Rules Android-Dominated Future in Fred Rowson's Years & Years Film

Creative 193 Add to collection

Blink director co-creates a sci-fi dystopia with Years & Years frontman Olly Alexander starring Judi Dench, Ben Wishaw and Vithaya Pansringarm

AI Judi Dench Rules Android-Dominated Future in Fred Rowson's Years & Years Film

Fred Rowson of Blink Productions directs a futuristic, 15-minute cosmic adventure of a short film to coincide with the release of Years & Years' new album of the same name, Palo Santo. 

The film is set in an otherworldly, dystopian AI universe where the few remaining humans amongst a thriving population of androids are enrolled into Groundhog Day-esque cabarets, forced to perform night after night for said androids in the hopes of triggering some kind of emotional response.

Starring Judi Dench as a megalomaniac AI mastermind, Ben Whishaw, Thai actor Vithaya Pansringarm and Years & Years frontman Olly Alexander, the film features two music videos also directed by Fred for the band in their ongoing creative collaboration. It's a visual feast of queer sexuality, glittering science fiction and the surreal tensions that are signature of Fred's work.
