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. Following the successful festival run, the short film has attracted the attention of the major talent-agencies and Hollywood producers. Currently ROSA is in development to be a live-action motion picture.

 It was released online this week and has been gaining a lot of attention. More of a showcase for Orellana's talents than a story, the film takes obvious influences from The Matrix and Battle Angel Alita. The fact that he made it from his own bedroom and at a low budget is some achievement.
