Record/Play: A Walkman Time Machine Is Tragic Sci-Fi Love

Here’s a fantastic short for you sci-fi fans: Record/Play, directed by Jesse Atlas, is a short film that covers time travel, love, changing fate, war, memories and cassette tapes. It’s slow building yet tense, and you’re itching to see what new wrinkles each play of the tape will bring.

The film originally debuted at the 2012 Los Angeles Film Festival and was more recently shown at Sundance 2013. The love story is tragic but the sci-fi world is fascinating. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Focus Features will be adapting the short into a full-length film directed by Jesse Atlas. [Jesse Atlas]
