Another World on Facebook
The official one-sheet for the Israeli zombie movie Another World has crawled out from its crypt. Well, okay, it was on the flick’s Facebook page, but we love sounding all dramatic. In any event, dig it!
The first zombie film ever to come out of the area, Another World is being directed by Eitan Reuven and stars Carl McCrystal, Zach Cohen, Susanne Gschwendtner, Davina Kevelson and David Lavenski.
“Another World is a post-apocalyptic horror/science fiction film. The setting is in a near future where a biological warfare program goes wrong and turns most of humanity into mindless, murderous creatures.
There are five characters, which are still uninfected, trying to survive constant attacks by the infected. Each one of them represents in some way a different aspect of human existence, a different world view, but most important, a different moral view about the world and his/her place in it —
The Colonel – A professional soldier who represents the political-military-economic establishment, which sees life as a constant violent struggle for power and resources.
The Doctor – Represents a commitment to love, justice and non-violent struggle against all wrong.
The Wizard – A young man, an inventor and an autodidact scientist, who looks at life as a puzzle to be solved. He strives to discover, understand and invent, with no thought as to the consequences.
The Daughter – A simple girl with simple ambitions – sailing through life enjoying every comfort, while ignoring or unaware of bigger and more profound issues.
The Mouser – A murderer and rapist, evil in the most banal aspect of the word.
The plot takes place during their last six days. All along, as the characters evolve, they listen to a daily radio program dealing with the extinction of the dinosaurs, finding correlating themes to their own situation. As the protagonists move and try to survive, and as their world views and correlations to the situation are gradually revealed, the following themes are explored: the essence of evil, the boundaries of moral responsibility, species (and humankind) extinction, love, grace, euthanasia and more.”
