Xenogenesis is an interpretation of the science fiction novel Dawn by Octavia Butler which is the first book in a trilogy called The Xenogenesis Series. It is a story of the last surviving members of the human race being rescued by an alien race after a nuclear holocaust. These humans are placed in suspended animation and re-taught how to survive on a modified planet Earth. My video takes snippets of the introductory story and tries to convey the themes in visual terms without dialogue. Shot with Sony FX 1 edited in Final Cut Pro.
