Red Earth imagines a world in the late Anthropocene, where large parts of Earth have become inhospitable to life. The story follows three generations of Martians, from the first colonists to the first expedition to return to an Earth decimated by interplanetary war.
NEW MEXICO DEATHWISH DIATRIBE
Three narrators converge in the deserts of New Mexico, each with a separate story to tell. One narrator is J. Robert Oppenheimer, another is a visitor from outer space, and the other is me. Our stories converge across the span of time and space into a single stream of consciousness. Diatribe is the 2nd film in the Anthropocene Cycle.
2020, 12 minutes, USA, Directed by Georg Koszulinski, Unrated

“Red Earth tackles humanity’s resilience and folly using a tried-and-true method of science fiction storytelling that poses these questions through the lens of planetary annihilation, leaving us to pick up the pieces and decide for ourselves what the answers are.”– ROUGH DRAFT ATLANTA
“Koszulinski's epic allegory [Red Earth] parlays astonishing cinematography, future "testimonials," and resonant tropes from sci-fi and speculative fiction, to set spinning—both centrifugally and centripetally—a Spiral Galaxy of propositions about livable worlds and so-called homo sapiens.”- Craig Baldwin, OTHER CINEMA
“Discordant, psychedelic, and deeply surreal, Georg Koszulinski’s New Mexico Deathwish Diatribe achieves a distinction of giving you the impression you’re on acid without actually having to imbibe it.”- Benjamin Franz, FILM THREAT
