Laniakea Poster

Arthur C. Clarke once said, “Two possibilities exist: Either we are alone in the Universe or we are not. Both are equally terrifying”. Laniakea is a short film about the idea of being alone in the universe. The film follows a futuristic space explorer who has hopes to find extraterrestrial life but as of yet has not succeeded in finding anything. Dima Taran, the creator of Laniakea, manages to make a short film that is both visually stunning and thought-provoking. Laniakea makes you contemplate your place in the universe and it does so better than many feature films that have tackled the same concept.
