“The Earth is what we all have in common.”

The entire globe is barren; no trace of green remains. A long line of people edges slowly and eagerly forward. Under the strictest security, the people finally manage to get into a museum to view the main attraction: a lone tree.

Richly textured with beautifully detailed character designs and backgrounds, Sunday projects a haunting vision of a desolate future and is an unmistakable warning about the damage being done to the environment. 


The streaming event will take place in collaboration with the Goethe-Institut Boston and Deutsches Haus at New York University.
