About Let Me Let You Go
Let Me Let You Go is a comedic science fiction feature about hope, grief and humor as everything falls apart. The story opens in present day San Francisco. Miguel, sick of his gig as a psychedelic trip sitter, steals mushrooms from his Silicon Valley client and Cary is abducted from a sidewalk by an unmarked security force. The pair meet in detention where MF, an investor interested in life-extension research and cultural preservation, offers the artists an immortality serum to survive imminent societal and ecological collapse. The narrative film combines live action and stop motion animation. Inspired by creative and healing powers of mushrooms and hallucinogens, Clement Hil Goldberg uses near future sci-fi to bring our focus back to Earth.
