Design fiction in Moon

by Critical Commons Manager

The sci-fi future scenario of Moon is established economically at the beginning of the film with a corporate image ad/PSA explaining the narrative premise of the film, which is predicated on solving the world's energy crisis by harvesting an element from the far side of the moon. This is necessary information for viewers to have but it proves to be irrelevant to the plot of the film.
