quietearth [Celluloid 08.13.09] Japan post apocalyptic news short experimental



From the excellent Nippon Cinema comes the trailer for a 29 minute short film which delves into some of my favorite territory: It's experimental and post apocalyptic! And better yet, it's from Shozin Fukui (Pinocchio 964, Rubber's Lover).

A virus called S-94 has wiped out most of human civilization by 2010. Only two women survive the pandemic and now live together within the confines of a secluded shelter: Miu (Nozomi Hatsuki), who desperately wants to live, and the suicidal Ice (Yuko Tatsushima). Even though they have opposite outlooks, they’ve been able to maintain balance so far. That balance is shattered one day when a new survivor named Shuma (Yuya Ishikawa) enters the picture. They find out about his existence through a radio broadcast and begin to fight over him in the face of an otherwise hopeless future.

Trailer after the break.
