Christopher Webster [Celluloid 04.01.11] South Africa post apocalyptic movie news short scifi horror thriller drama

Bad title, I know... Anyway, Michael Matthews' Sweetheart is a visually arresting 30 minute South African short film made on a minuscule budget. It is heavy on the atmosphere and tells the story of a world in which a mysterious fate befalls the world. The FX are stunning, the photography rich and the acting very strong. Here's hoping we can see the whole thing soon.

The late 1950s, and the height of Cold War tension: When her husband and step sons don't return from a routine trip into town, a young housewife finds herself alone in their remote farmhouse. As time passes it becomes clear that they aren't coming back, and with hints of a strange events just over the horizon she must force herself out of an aimless cycle, setting off to find them.

What she finds is a seemingly derelict world empty of all but a few dozen "survivors". Unsure who, if anyone, to trust, she must navigate a series of strange encounters to find shocking answers in a world that will reveal itself to be a marked alternative to what we remember.

Sweetheart stars Inge Beckmann, Anthony Oseyemi and Andre Weideman.

Check out the trailer (via: Twitch) after the break.
