THE SINGULARITY
(90 minutes – 5 m, 1 w, 1 trans w)
Astrid wants to get pregnant, but she’s missing one very vital ingredient. So she improvises with a box of dark matter. And it works. Within a couple of weeks, she’s expanded to three times her normal size. She knows something wants out, but she’s not sure what that something is. THE SINGULARITY asks: What happened before the Big Bang? When they cut your arm off, do you get to keep it? And what’s that whistling noise?
