Hopeless Hope - 2018 Film
Hopeless HopeCasper Laakso
In 2026, following the assassination of the President of the USA, the Vice President delivers an optimistic speech about the resurrection of a fallen nation, despite an ongoing all-out nuclear war.
13 year-old Casper Laakso, a future member of the Digital Sciences Program at Firestone High School, is always up for a challenge. So when his teacher, Wandering Aesthetics' Director of Education Kyle Jozsa, suggested he devise his own performance for the High Arts Festival, he didn't hesitate. The process began earlier this year and took a number of hours, as Casper wrote, directed, filmed and edited 'Hopeless Hope' all by himself.
