SEPTEMBER 28 AT 9PM
Andrew Finnigan - Port Orchard, WA - 94 min
Casting the Pacific Northwest as an expansive, open air nightmare, Koinonia meditates on the horror of looking at yourself in the mirror, if you are the last human alive.
John (Tony Doupe) might be the final person on Earth, and the film follows his somber slump towards a faint hopethe fabled last human city, Faradaythat he probably made up while playing backgammon with himself.
Director Andrew Finnigan's take on post apocalyptic sci-fi builds an atmosphere of lonely, steady ache, with an eye for desolate detail in the dystopian wilderness. Every tree looks abandoned, and every horizon engulfs. In these moments the film succeeds quietly, hovering on the nostalgic look flashed by John when he sees a new face in a long-lost photograph.
Zeek Earl & Chris Caldwell - Seattle, WA - 14 min
A teenage girl must use her wits to survive on a toxic alien planet.
