Two loners from different worlds find fleeting intimacy in this enchanting and stylish short film.

A solitary teenage girl discovers an injured man on her neighbour’s property, but this hirsute being seems to have fallen from another time or even another planet. Transforming the surrounding forest into a magical Eden, director Jamie Lawrence – who honed his craft assisting on blockbusters including the Hobbit films and Avatar – conjures an entire universe through dreamy cinematography, lush colours and tender performances. Earthlings is a surreal, whimsical and surprisingly sweet portrait of two outsiders longing for connection.
