“I”

As Johnny transforms into a higher being, everything he knows is changing. Time, breathing, thinking and communicating will soon be non-existent – for just him.

He finds himself in a race across the city to give his girlfriend one final kiss before that too no longer exists.

Director’s statement

Natalie Lisa Johnson says:

“I created “I” to address the chaos that has been circulating around the 2012 Doomsday.

When reading about the shaman theories of 2012 I thought that if life, as we know it,  is going to change I would want one last kiss to hold on to some simplicity.

Every film I create is about my now. “I” is my current now.”
