In Vitro is set in the aftermath of an eco-disaster. An abandoned nuclear reactor under the biblical town of Bethlehem has been converted into an enormous orchard. Using heirloom seeds collected in the final days before the apocalypse, a group of scientists are preparing to replant the soil above. In the hospital wing of the underground compound, the orchard’s ailing founder, 70-year-old Dunia is lying in her deathbed, as 30-year-old Alia comes to visit her. Alia is born underground as part of a comprehensive cloning program and has never seen the town she’s destined to rebuild.
Larissa Sansour and Soren Lind have worked together on numerous occasions. Lind usually provides the scripts for Sansour’s films, just as he contributed a sci-fi story for Sansour’s 2009 graphic novel The Novel of Nonel and Vovel, a collaboration with artist Oreet Ashery. In 2015 they co-directed the short film In the Future they ate from the Finest Porcelain, In Vitro is their second directorial cooperation.
