“Lively, confessional, and entertaining …”
Welcome to a world undone. The Earth we once knew is gone, destroyed by the greed and carelessness of man. The Beautiful Cape Town that we know and love is transformed as the backdrop of the Futuristic Apocalyptic Film.
Clearly, humans are a force of nature, but unlike any other natural disaster, we are not only the cause of so much destruction, we participate in it. The Film in itself is an act of awareness, of our impact on nature, each other and bringing about the question of what future are we shaping, or passively watching as it is shaped by others. The Film brings about the best of an Post Apocalyptic Action Film with a tale of caution to society, a testament to people who care about future generations.
