Mission Complete is a new short film written and directed by Jara Moravec and produced by Closer, Hamlet and Kode.
The film charts the stream of consciousness of a woman waiting outside a shopping mall for a Tinder date. She keeps waiting, letting her imagination run wild. Nervous about their first date, her dreams and ambitions come to the surface, some of them running very deep. What is she looking for in life? Is romance still relevant in today's world? Are things really so different now than they were three, four, and five centuries ago?
Through the prism of one potential relationship, Mission Complete explores themes of humanity and modernity. In a shopping mall, on a neat suburban street, inside of a golf course, and in the middle of vast agricultural land, the story takes place in utterly modern settings, making you wonder whether it feels utopian or dystopian.
How do we form relationships with other people? Are there places in our ever-busy society where we can find happiness? With so much of our life being turned into a game through apps, don't we all become characters in a computer game? Our deepest desires became our mission objectives, validated by the likes of our internet friends.
At the end, Mission Complete turns its attention to the same existential anxiety that has always been present in our lives. However, this time, it's manifested in the form of two NPCs and a couple of desperately lost Sims 1 characters.
