In a not so distant future, the climate catastrophe has left much of the world in ruins, and the exploitative tech giant GOLIA has the surviving nations in an iron grip of ignorant consumerism. Members of the hacktivist anti-GOLIA network Xtinct Bugs, Marcus and Ronja, are trying to get their climate activist messages across, but a failed attempt to hack into GOLIA has dire consequences.
GOLIA is an ambitious “cli-fi” short film inspired by 90s-era cyberpunk and hacker films that critically examines how modern technology can affect and control our lives.
