quietearth [Celluloid 05.08.08] post apocalyptic movie news



We've been tracking this PA flick for a while and now, an having played a couple of festivals, there's still no word on a release. But we do have news that the film has been renamed to 20 Years After and has a new trailer. 20 Years After is a post-nuke, post-plague flick about the first child born in 15 years, and I have to say the footage looks great, not to mention the premise. Synopsis and trailer after the break.

"Everything that could go wrong did go wrong: War, Terrorism, Natural Disasters. Evacuees were ushered from the cities to refugee camps in rural areas. In-fighting, famine and disease took their toll on the survivors. Now, twenty years after the bombs fell and the plagues ran their course the few that remain live in fear and without hope.


This is a post apocalyptic fairy tale about a young woman's journey to deliver the first child born in 15 years. Sarah's refusal to give up is inspired by a lone voice on her radio. Michael broadcasts distant messages of hope mixed with the music he scavenges from the dead. Forced from her basement home by drought and relentlessly pursued by those who want her baby, Sarah crosses paths with Michael in a strange and enchanting refuge of disparate survivors. Together Sarah and Michael will begin a journey that will take them beyond the desolate Southern Corridor and into the unknown future."

The new name sounds like the most PA or plague movies out there,..uhm probably marketing reasons. Anyway, I think the old one was fine.

I agree. It definitely loses character with the new name.

Changeing the name 20 years after I think is a parable title to the 1984 movie The Day After...Seeing the trailer for the first time I can't wait. PA Rules!

My wife and I just saw this wonderful gem. I'd been looking for it ever since seeing it mentioned here. Thank you!

However, if you've seen it you may want to head over to IMDB where it is getting a lousy rating. It deserves far better.
