SHORT FILM SCRIPT: THE MIRACLE OF FC GAGARIN, by Rene Nuijens

GagarinbolyarovocopyOn April 12, 1961 a football disappeared mysteriously in the sky during a friendly match between two Bulgarian (?) amateur football teams. Exactly one year later a Kazachstan goat farmer returned the ball to the football club and had an amazing story on how the ball saved his and his goats lives in the Kazachstan steppe. In this short film we are flashing back in time and try to unravel the miracle that happened 57 years ago.

This has to be the 5th film I make in dedication to the first man in Space Yuri Gagarin. The 4 other films were shown on more then 100 shortfilmfestivals around the world and they won several awards.

2. Title: Cellfie

3. Logline: Lost in the body of an ailing boy, a narcissistic cell named Cellfie, tries to find his way back home.

4. The story begins in Cell Block D, aka the lower intestines, where the cells of the body have created their own community called Cellciety. We meet CELLFIE, born with an “exceptional membrane” – the more water and oxygen he ingests, the shinier he gets. He is well known as the shiny cell.

Like all other cells in his community, Cellfie works in the Plumbing Department. Cellfie and his co-workers make sure that the water and oxygen transmission is clean through all of the pipes. They have no idea that those pipes are the insides of a 10 year old boy.

While maneuvering a secret plumbing project to secure abundance of water and oxygen only for himself, Cellfie damages the infrastructure, causing the young boy’s illness. During this maneuver, Cellfie accidentally falls in the Red River (blood vein), which is believed to lead to the edge of the world.

Instead of falling off the edge of the world, Cellfie starts a cosmic journey throughout the boy’s body, discovering a new world.

During his turbulent journey, Cellfie realizes that all the cells are actually creating one world – the boy, whose illness was caused by his selfishness. Realizing what he has done, he goes through transformation.

Cellfie is now in a race against time to find Cellciety and make things right – the destiny of the boy and all the cells is in his hands.
