Fear takes us down an unexpected road in UNDAUNTED, a revolutionary Solarpunk storytelling event from author Samantha Redstreake Geary, in collaboration with artist Jenny Vyas, featuring music by Really Slow Motion.
The UNDAUNTED Story
UNDAUNTED tackles real-world issues concerning terrorism, prejudice, and diversity, to near-future technology surrounding sustainable energy that restores the balance between humanity and nature. This isn’t a defeatist tale. It is a look through the lens of positive futurism that showcases the courage, compassion and capabilities of humanity as equal partners in building a bridge to a better tomorrow.
“Narrated by Fear, this reimagining of Sleeping Beauty chronicles the journey of a group of visionaries who struggle to overcome their various fears in the aftermath of a terrorist attack that struck an international green summit a decade prior. The diverse cast of characters navigate a near-future world where nothing, and no one, is quite what they seem. A young Japanese AI specialist bearing a family burden has an unusual ability. A curious red-headed intern breaks free of the stifling walls of an institute that prepared her to meet the world, but not to know her place in it. A plant geneticist from India learns to overcome her tragic past through art. An autistic boy who thinks too much and feels too little discovers the power of connection in an unlikely companion. A retired Mexican singer keeps a dark secret alive for the sake of her son. A widowed green architect honors the spirits of his wife and daughter by building the impossible. Join them as they travel down an ordinary road to an extraordinary place, where a sentient, sustainable structure with a holographic heart rises from the North Carolina mountain landscape to embrace a new age of hope.”
