David Farr writes and directs Impossible Planet episode for Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams.

David’s episode tells the story of two disaffected space tourism employees who exploit an elderly woman’s wish to return to Earth. Knowing full well that Earth no
longer exists, the employees scam the woman for her money but are met with an
unexpected turn of events. Jack Reynor and Benedict Wong star.

The ten episode series, based on short stories by the critically acclaimed novelist,
will be aired by Channel 4 in the UK later this year, and by Amazon in the U.S.

Once Associate Director of The Royal Shakespeare Company, David moved into
television when he worked on BBC show Spooks. He completed his first feature film, Hanna, for Focus features in 2009.

More recently, his directorial debut, The Ones Below, premiered at Toronto International Film Festival in 2015 and was released in UK cinemas in March 2016.
