Firebase, a short film by Neill Blomkamp

posted by Jason Kottke   Jul 05, 2017

Neill Blomkamp has released a second short film through Oats Studios. Firebase is set in Vietnam in 1970 and follows a group of American soldiers trying to make sense of the so-called River God and the strange phenomena that arise around him. Just as with the previous film, Rakka, they are selling some of Firebase’s assets on Steam. I found this one less compelling than Rakka, by YMMV.

Note: if you are at all squeamish, heed the warning at the beginning of the film…it’s super gory at times.
