Mars Express

Mars Express

“Périn brings fresh ideas and a level of granular detail to this gritty and downbeat view of the near future.” — Screen International 

In the 23rd century, a private detective and her android partner are hired by a wealthy businessman to hunt down an infamous cybernetics hacker. On Mars, they venture deep into the heart of the planet’s capital, discovering a web of intrigue involving brain farms, corruption and a girl’s disappearance that may reveal a truth about robots that could revolutionise society.

Mars Express fuses the science fiction neon noir of Blade Runner with the sleek animation of mind melters like Ghost in the Shell and Paprika to reach for new philosophical insight into our relationship with technology, without ever compromising the excitement of its race-against-the-clock pacing.
