The Other Shape

Directed by Diego Felipe Guzmán

Colombia, Brasil | 93 min | 2023

Trying to enter in a square paradise, Peter Press, the citizen most obsessed with "fit", discovers a different shape in the world.

In the near future, humanity builds an artificial "square paradise" on the surface of the moon, which can only be reached if each one has the appearance and the way of thinking of a square. To achieve this goal, people use "squareism machines": presses, corrective devices and cosmetic surgeries that mold their bodies like cubes and close their minds to questioning.

Peter Press, probably the most obsessed citizen to fit in that world, has been living with a press in his head for 20 years and has just completed his Squarism process. About to get the passage to the moon, an incident forces him to take the press off, and observe a different form. The new shape shakes the foundations of its doctrine and jeopardizes its entrance to the precious Eden.
