‘The Elected’ - ANKE LUCKMANN photographs a personal project for the short film of the same name shot by director Felipe Franco

In the sci-fi short film ‘The Elected’ by director Felipe Franco, the fictive company Orbital Corps attempts to monopolize agriculture by using its power and influence to ban it from Earth and use it exclusively to produce food in its facilities in outer space.

“Felipe and I have known each other for a long time – and have stayed close throughout the years. So when he filmed his short film now in Catalonia, I visited him on set. And, of course, brought a little photo story with Raul and a Tesla back with me.” photographer ANKE LUCKMANN tells us.

The plot thickens : Under the executive of charismatic CEO Joaquin (played by Raul Tortosa), the company employs economic power and other means to advance its cause. A despicable plan entails lobbying with the help of artificial intelligence and putting newly elected citizens under pressure in order to select the desired parliament.

“The film, shot in Spain, is set in the near future when politicians aren’t elected by the population but by an AI system that picks the appropriate representations of the population to serve in congress. Jose, a decadent down-to-earth winemaker is unexpectedly elected and finds himself torn between defending his family heritage and business or entering the corrupt world of politics to protect their future.” Director Felipe Franco.

The film plays against the backdrop of the beautiful municipality of Artés in Spain, located in the Province of Barcelona.
