Description:
A stylised sci-fi film set in the near future, Ederlezi Rising examines the relationship between man and woman, and between man and machine.

Ederlezi recruits Milutin, a Slav cosmonaut trained in the newly reformed futuristic Soviet Union and accompanies him with Nimani, a female android programmed to fulfil Milutin's desires. Bored by an endless succession of sexual games and pre-programmed behaviours, Milutin decides to reboot Nimani and make her work based on custom settings generated from her experiences with him. That way he turns her into something closest to a person that an android can ever become. However, upon becoming a person, Nimani gets depressed and destructive. Milutin realizes that Nimani's behaviour may not only jeopardize their mission but also lead to self-destruction.

"Our idea was to tell a metaphorical, dreamy love story and to make a visually expressive film. /.../ The film is essentially deeply melodramatic in its core and carries a great deal of tenderness that is in antagonism with the dystopian context in which the film unfolds, a rigid future resembling a radicalized version of Chinese corpo-communism." (Lazar Bodroža)
