Sayang

A solarpunk story about love and sanctuary at the world's end.

Sayang is the story of Eko, a Warden of the Bornean forest. Faced with gradual sight loss, Eko is drawn to an experimental technology that would make him one with his sanctuary—at the cost of a self-imposed exile from which he may never return.

Masterfully sound-designed... Sayang knows exactly what to give us upfront—a tender romance, a lush, vivid setting—and what to unfold gradually: a tense conflict between nature and technology, and the stories of the humans caught between them.

Sayang adapts a short story of the same name by Nicholas Chan — read it here.
