Christopher Webster [Celluloid 08.06.15] post apocalyptic thriller



We're big fans of Zak Hilditch's These Final Hours (review), an emotional and thrilling Australian PA film. I recently re-watched the film on Netflix and was taken with it all over again, so I thought I'd share the PA short that got Hilditch his start called Transmission which stars Angourie Rice who gave such an amazing performance as Rose in These Final Hours.

The short was produced in 2012 by Liz Kearney and was funded through Screen Australia's Springboard initiative.


Synopsis:
Set across post-apocalyptic Western Australian desert highways, Transmission takes the audiences on a compelling journey of survival as they follow 10 year old Tilly and her father Jim who try to make their way to the 'virus free' safe zone based in the small town of Leonora following an airborne pandemic that has wiped out 90% of the population of their hometown, Perth.

Along the way Tilly must face up to some harsh lessons, most importantly, how to drive. She must endure the ultimate driving lesson in a post apocalyptic world.



Transmission stars Angourie Rice, Wayne Davies and Ben Sutton.

Great Short, highlights one of my visions of hell, being stuck at the end of the world with a ten year old. I would run towards the Zombies.
