[Welcome to the Sci-Fi Lunch Break, where we'll be occasionally supplying you with a cool bit of audio/visual goodness to break up the monotony of the work day. You bring the turkey on rye, we'll bring you something out of this world to watch while you eat it.]

If you know me, then you know I'm a sucker for post-apocalyptic worlds. With that in mind, I think Jens Raunkjær Christensen and Jonas Drotner Mouritsen's short film, Connected, is one of the most unique post-apocalyptic concepts I've seen in some time:

"Set in the distant future, Connected is a story about survival and greed with a post apocalyptic wasteland as its backdrop. Survivors of an unknown disaster shuffle through a desolate landscape, as it quickly becomes clear that not everybody has the strength to survive."

As for the short beyond the concept, I think it's quite well made with the exception of the Spaghetti Western score, which seems almost farcical given how dead serious everything else is. It's still well worth a watch, though. Enjoy.
