Planetarium is a free improvisation framed within the short fiction film ‘Venus’, directed by the screenwriter Álvaro Parrilla Álvarez in collaboration with the Kunsthochschule für Medien Köln. Shot in and around Cologne, 'Venus' tells the story of Chris, a gay scentist/physician? Since the meteor shower that destroyed Earth, Chris has been living in the bunker. For his misfortune he lives alone, because Alex, his partner, did not arrive in time. For the past 30 years, Chris has used his physics expertise to try to return to the past and save Alex.
The story is divided into two parallel timelines: One in the past, the same night of the meteor shower, and the second in the future, 30 years after the disaster. The song Venus of the Spanish group “Quentin Gas y los Zíngaros” serves as a link between the two timelines until they converge into a single at the end of the story.
