A trailer for Ever After (Endzeit) has been released ahead of its World Premiere in the Discovery section of the forthcoming Toronto International Film Festival. The film looks like an interesting spin on the zombie apocalypse and judging by the trailer below, it will be a must-see feature at TIFF.
“Two years after a viral zombie epidemic has left only two German cities uninfected, 22-year-old Vivi (Gro Swantje Kohlhof) and 26-year-old Eva (Maja Lehrer) flee the brutal existence in Weimar and hop an automated train for the other supposed safe haven, Jena.
Unfortunately, the train unexpectedly stops mid-trip, leaving Vivi and Eva to reluctantly forge a bond as they make their way across a beautiful but zombified countryside in Thuringia (“the green heart of Germany”), towards the city and salvation at the other end of the line.”
“It depicts the friendship of two young women, who are forced to emancipate themselves in order to survive. In the end, a kind of love arises, not only to each other but to the fantastic nature surrounding them,” says director Carolina Hellsgård.
